Hi everyone-

I'm trying to figure out this puzzle that has to with numbers inside a 20x20 square.

After 1000 cycles, the square will always contain a 10x10 square in the upper left hand corner of all 0's, which will not change. My job is to find out what is happening to all the numbers, and why they do what they are doing. You are allowed to enter any number you wish into the cycle processor.

Hopefully someone can help me come up with ideas, or even provide me with some hints as to what they think is happening. I've looked over this for hours, and can't figure it out, but that is probably because I'm bad with numbers! This assignment is for an Informatics class. Please someone help me out! Thanks so much!
