Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets say that the thing is correct for k players, So we can say that k1 matches are required to find a champion

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now, for k+1 player, we can say that to find out a winner out of k players we need k1 matches

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And the winner can play a game with the last one, so in all we need k matches

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is the way I solved the problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But I think its not keeping the term "knock out" in place

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I mean, in a knock out match we can't say that there is a last player, and that player is playing with the winner of all the previous games

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So this why I think my solution is incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I kind of liken these problems to geometrical ones where you're needing to show general properties via an assumption on a whole portion beforehand. We add a component to the end and work through the final leg of induction at that point. I see what you're saying with the knockout thing, but I have a suspicion there's a symmetry at play here, which means in the end, it doesn't matter if you attach the last player at the end. I'll have another look.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. You have to perform a linear transformation and a rotational one. At least, that's what I'd do, and invert.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this not just a permutation problem?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I understand that, and without that rotation the problem looses all its fun
