A teacher has to select 1 of her 20 students to attend a leadership conference. To be fair she places them in a circle and gives each student a number, in order, from 1 through 20. Then, starting with 1, she points to every other student, sending them back to their seats. she sends student number 2 back, student number 4 back, student number 6 back, and so on, until she goes completely around the circle. She continues skipping every other student until only 1 person is left. In which position should a student stand in order to be selected to attend the conference?

To determine which position a student should stand in to be selected to attend the conference, we can use a mathematical approach.
Starting with student 1, we send every other student back to their seats. This means that we keep students 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19 standing. We then repeat this process with the remaining students until only one student is left standing.
Using this method, we can determine that the last student standing is student number 19.
Therefore, if a student wants to be selected to attend the conference, they should stand in position number 19.
