lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pay attention: What is the minimum number of days can they all play without any team playing more than one game a day?

pizzapi

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, its 13 days, with 6 games per day

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im getting 12 days : first team finishes all its games(12) first day, second team finishes all its remaining games(11) second day, ... 12+11+10+9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1minimum days=total games/max games per day

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@ganeshie8 each team can only play 1 game for day

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you divide total by max..won't that make the final answer max?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no cuz the minimum would be 1 game per day

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are trying to minmize the number of days, by fitting the most games in one day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.013C1 gives the same result though...

lgbasallote
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.013 teams..one game per day...so 13C1 would make sense right?

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, there must be a total of 78 games

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.113 teams must play all the other teams

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isn't that what 13C1 means?

panlac01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0with 13 teams, only 12 teams can play in one day

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no 13 C 1 means the number of ways you can select 1 team from 13 teams

panlac01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the question is, what is the minimum day that they can ALL play without any team playing more than 1 team a day

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what are you implying?

pizzapi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.112 team playing on 1 day=6 games in total for the day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this was a question in a board exam back in '94 so it's meant to be tricky

panlac01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the first day, you are left with one team unable to play

panlac01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you need to move on to the second day to give that specific team who didn't play to play.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i really think 13C1 makes sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the case of (13C2)/6...why divide by 6? of all the numbers?

pizzapi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16 is the number of games played in 1 day by 12 teams

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but what about for the case of 13 teams?

pizzapi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1only 12 teams can play per day because they have to be grouped in teams of 2

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't think that means the other team should be disregarded

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its a 1v1 match, 2 teams per game

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, on the first day team 1 vs 2 3 vs 4 5 vs 6 7 vs 8 9 vs 10 11 vs 12 the 13th team can't play because all the other teams have already played a game

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i get that. but im asking for the case of 13 teams. is that logic applicable in that case?

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you used 13C2 and then divided by 6 (which is for 12 teams)

pizzapi
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.113C2 represents the total games because you are select teams of 2 out of 13 teams if you organize all the games, 6 games per day, it would take 13 days in total

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1*groups of two teams out of 13 teams

panlac01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is the answer with the formula being suggested?

pizzapi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(13C2)/6 I really need to work on explaining things, hopefully openstudy will help me with that

panlac01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0don't worry bro, you got it from the first time. Illustration makes a better explanation sometimes.

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do you agree with pizzapi already @panlac01 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@pizzapi Is right. Because there has to be a total of 78 games played for each team to play each other team. It asks for the minimum number of days for these 78 games to be played in (at least that's the interpretation of the question). So to find that you divide 78 by the maximum number of games that can be played on a single day, which is 6. Therefore, 78/6=13. It takes 13 days for all teams to play each other.
