Ping pong tournament9 ping pong players will participate in a tournament. There are only 3 tables where 3 games can be played simultaneously. Two players will be playing in each game, while a third will be acting as the arbitrator. For example, the first round would be 12 3 45 6 78 9 with 3, 6 and 9 being the arbitrators and 12 45 78 playing against each other. #2 20120601 18:02:59
Re: Ping pong tournamentHi anna_gg;
There are 4 conditions here. Which of these are not to broken and which can be? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20120602 00:24:43
Re: Ping pong tournamentWell, you are right; actually I was considering the first 3 conditions as one These 3 can't be broken. #4 20120602 00:26:49

Re: Ping pong tournamentYou are absolutely right, but I don't have any experience in programming #10 20120603 20:06:04
Re: Ping pong tournamentI have lots and it is not helping. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Ping pong tournamentAm sure someone will show up with a brilliant idea
