u will never reach because after 4 steps you are only 15 cm away from door after 5 th step the distance will be 7.5 then 3.75 then 1.875 than0.9375 than 0.46875 thus you have to cover very small distance for long time and u cant

2. this puzzle can be easily solved with the help of geometric progression of infinite series sum
so solution is 16 moves
