Disagree with the solution for the the 5 pirates and 100 gold coinsBasically, I just disagree with the phrasing of the question which gives a different solution than the one presented. Last edited by vecksberex (20100407 02:36:29) #2 20100423 18:20:36
Re: Disagree with the solution for the the 5 pirates and 100 gold coinsIt's a great problem but I too disagree with the solution to me it is implied that all pirates, including the one making the proposal, get to vote. So when there are 2 pirates then the one making the proposal will keep all the money for himself, not give it to the other one.
