# Science of Apps! - Part 3: 2048

$$2048$$ is an insanely addictive game. The objective is simple, bring the same powers of two together to add them together, and keep increasing the powers of $$2$$ until you reach $$2048$$ and beyond.

The game starts with $$2$$ and $$4$$ tiles, popping up in different places of the $$4\times 4$$ grid.

To get to the $$2048$$ tile requires finesse, and a slight bit of luck. In the best scenario, what is the least number of moves required to get the $$2048$$ tile?

This problem is part of the Science of Apps! series
