Re: Please Help me with this puzzle.

I had not thought of that, 10 year old scrtrys.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Please Help me with this puzzle.

Excellent discussion. But how about suggesting the reword og the  problem to make it a feasible one? May be accepring the condition of possible use of three stalls by each child and no limitation of collective stall use as alredy proposed here by "a solver".
