comment Is this a mistake in The Imitation Game?
That makes sense, Mourad -- you are probably right -- I haven't seen the movie, but maybe it shows that it really does take 10 men to check one setting. In either case, I think we agree the movie's "20 million years" is way too low.

comment Is this a mistake in The Imitation Game?
I think the problem described in the movie meant to indicate that each of the 10 men was checking a different setting -- so the group of 10 men as a whole would check 10 settings per minute, not just 1 setting per minute. (Because as you mention, if all 10 of the men are checking just one setting, there would be no need to mention that there were 10 of them.)
