The contradiction forces us to abandon our initial assumption and conclude that at least two people must have the same displacement number. The proof generalizes to any table with an even number of chairs. The sum of 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + n is n(n + 1)/2, which is a multiple of n only when n is odd. Thus the proof fails for a table with an odd number of chairs. George Rybicki solved the general problem this way. We start by assuming the contrary of what we wish to prove. Let n be the even number of persons, and let their names be replaced by the integers 0 to n - 1 "in such a way that the place cards are numbered in sequence around the table.

He reported that he found 39,809,640 chains, ,excluding reversals. Later, on Nickerson's variant, he found 227,968 solutions for n = 12 and 1,520,280 solutions for n = 13. Eugene Levine found only one solution for triplets when n = 9, but Miller made an exhaustive computer search that found three solutions: 191618257269258476354938743 191218246279458634753968357 181915267285296475384639743 Another exhaustive search by Miller turned up five solutions for triplets when n = 10: 110161793586310753968457210429824 110121429724810564793586310753968 410171418934710356839752610285296 811013196384731064958746251029725 131101349638457106495827625102987 Finally, Jaromir Abram wrote a paper on the general problem: "Exponential Lower Bounds for the Numbers of Skolem and Extremal Langford Sequences," in Ars Combinatoria (vol.

Three points are selected at random on a sphere's surface. What is the probability that all three lie on the same hemisphere? It is assumed that the great circle, bordering a hemisphere, is part of the hemisphere. 5-Cut Cards A standard deck of 52 cards is shuffled and cut and the cut is completed. The color of the top card is noted. This card is replaced on top, the deck is cut again, and the cut is completed. Once more the color of the top card is noted. What is the probability that the two cards noted are the same color?
