A Gnutella topology looks like a balanced ternary tree with 4 levels of nodes, i.e., peers, as shown in the picture below. Thus, there is 1 root at Level 1, which has 3 children at Level 2, which each have 3 children at Level 3, which in turn each have 3 children at Level 4 – thus, there are a total of 40 nodes.

If the root node (Level 1) sends a Query message with TTL=2, then what are the number of nodes receiving the Query message, not including the originating node? Enter your answer as a numeric value in the text box below. (1 point)
