Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh wait, I see. Let f(n) be the number of friends in that group that the nth person has. For each n, \[ 0 \leq f(n) \leq 5 \] Therefore ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are 6 values for f(1), f(2), f(3), f(4), f(5), f(6). Now it can't be that these six number take on all of 0,1,2,3,4,5. Because if f(n) = 5 for one n, then f(j) > 0 for all other \( j \neq n \). Hence in fact, there are only 5 possible values for f(n). But as there are six f(n), at least two of the f(n) must be equal.
