Just need to figure out what im doing, dont need any awnsers :) thanks for the help \( ゚ヮ゚)/ A buffet-style restaurant has 18 tables that seat 23 people each. A group of 401 has rented the restaurant for a banquet. If another man comes, his wife, and their nine children come as invited guests, what is the least number of people that can sit at one table?

    Maximum is 23 per table. But least is less than 22, by the pigeon hole principle.
