I didn't understand your hint. X was not input, just the numbers[]...
First I thought that the numbers will decrease quickly because of second rule
if ( numbers[i] % 2 == 0  numbers[j] % 2 == 0) {
numbers[i] /= 2;
numbers[j] /= 2;
}
But there is a problem, it's not decreasing so fast...

if ( numbers[i] % 2 == 0  numbers[j] % 2 == 0) {
numbers[i] /= 2;
numbers[j] /= 2;
}
But there are two problems  it's not decreasing so fast as I thought. And the question is how many different papers I can get and not how many different winning sequences there is (that's what I tried to solve first).
For example in first test case there are two ways how to reduce { 5, 1, 1, 2, 3 } to {4, 0, 0, 2, 2 }:
{ 5, 1, 1, 2, 3 } (5, 3, 'a')> { 4, 1, 1, 2, 2 } (1, 1, 'a')> { 4, 0, 0, 2, 2 }
{ 5, 1, 1, 2, 3 } (5, 1, 'a')> { 4, 0, 1, 2, 3 } (1, 3, 'a')> { 4, 0, 0, 2, 2 }
But resulting paper is just one  "aa".
