 Quote: given 10 digit number, x, and its output, y, if setting the dials on the door to x opens the floor, then setting them to y will cause the poison to flood the room. And, conversly, if x brings poison the room, y will open the floor.

If x is 0000001126 then y is 6210001000. Since we already know that that value of y will not set off either trap, then x won't either because it would imply y setting off the other.

After rereading the problem I don't think the computer opens the door, it sounds like the door opens itself and the computer just chooses a trap.

Also, mith might like to know: seven-ten-hundred-thousand + 6300...0100 are the only cycle of two, and there are no cycles of 3/4/5.../8/9. I haven't bothered to do more, although it would be very easy.
