...do I win anything?

A disgruntled jailer in a circular prison with 100 cells decides to free some prisoners. At night, he runs around the prison and turns the keys in the prison doors while the prisoners are sleeping. The first time around, he turns the key in each door, unlocking them all. The second time around, he turns the key in every other door, locking half of the ones he just unlocked. The third time around, he turns the key in every third door unlocking some and locking others. He goes around the prison 100 times and collapses as the sun rises. How many prisoners find their cells unlocked in the morning?

Here is one...

imagine an empty elevator on the ground floor.
6 mathematicians are walking in and heading for the second floor.
on the second floor 9 mathematicians are leaving the elevator.
how many mathematicians have to enter the elevator on the third floor so that the elevator is empty?

The answer seems to be simple, but try to visualize this

best regards
