Re: easy riddle
Although totally impractical, technically, one would never reach the door, by halving the distance, the distance would always be greater than Zero.

Re: easy riddle
One problem is that infinity is not a number. So an infinite number of moves would still not reach the door.

Whether or not infinity is a number it is clear that an infinite number of moves would in fact reach the door.
