Shuttle Puzzle Practice II
Every permutation can be represented (not uniquely) as a product of transpositions. The shuttles puzzle serves a convenient tool to practice such representations.
The applet below presents a random permutation of integers 1, ..., N, N being the variable number of vertical poles. The target permutation is shown just below the poles. A horizontal shuttle represents a single transposition that are executed sequentially from the top down. Draw as many shuttles as needed to achieve the target permutation. Press the "Verify" button when ready.
