Re: 2 Pigeonhole problems

Hi;

The average person has 100000 hairs on their head. Woodbridge, New Jersey has 100001 people in it according to my last door to door count. By the pigeonhole principle that means that there are 2 people in Woodbridge that have the same number of hairs on their head.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
