Basically it says: When you have n items to be placed in n-1 locations, at least one location will contain two or more items. Example: if you try to put 10 pigeons in 9 holes, you will end up with at least one pigeonhole containing 2 or more pigeons. Example quiz using the pigeonhole principle: Five points are marked on a sphere. Show that it is always possible to draw a circle on the surface of the sphere such that at least four points are on one side of the circle. Assume that a point on the circle itself is considered to be on either side.

Correction to formulation of example problem. Five points are marked on a sphere. Show that there is a hemisphere that contains at least four points, assuming that points at the intersection of the hemispheres is considered to be on both hemispheres.

Another one: Five points are drawn inside of a square of side 1 cm. Show that there are two points which are less than 0.75 cm apart.

It has 4 forms. The basic one says that if there are nk + 1 pigeons and n pigeonholes then there are at least k pigeons in 1 pigeonhole.
