n+i people From among n couples without picking two From the same couple. 2} Consider how many partiers are Friendless. IF nobody is, then each oF the
2b partiers has From 1 to 1? Friends, so two must haue the same number. IF one person is Friendless, then each oF the remaining 19 has From i to i9 Friends,
and again two must have the same number. IF two or more are Friendless, then theg all have the same number oF Friends. 3} IF n players play, and each has between i and n1 wins, then two most have
the same number oF wins, by the pigeonhole principle. 4} 52. The French and German books are red herrings. IF we pick all 18 oF
them, then bu the pigeonhole principle we can pick 33 but not 34 books oF the
remaining languages without picking 12 oF the same language. Iu+34=52. 5} IF euergone knows at least Fiue people, then there are at least 5*2ﬂ12 = 56
pairs, not 43. 6} 6. IF she has Five jokes, then there are only E{5,3}=13 diFFerent triples
and she'll haue to repeat twice in twelue gears. IF she has six, then she can
choose From among C(6,3}=26 diFFerent triples without repetition. ?} we can assume all the numbers are positive, or add suFFicientlg large multiples of ten to those that aren't without changing the problem. Two of the
seven numbers must then have last digits that belong to the some one of the sin sets {o}, {1,9}, {2,3}, (3,?}. {4,6}, {5) and those two will have a sum or
diFFerence divisible by ten. 3} The sums of three consecutive numbers themselves sum to 165. By the
pigeonhole principle, one of the ten sums must be at least ibEiiG=16.5. 9} ﬁt least 99x6 = i5.5 oF the hours must Fall into one of the sin two—day
periods {days 1 and 2}, {dags 3 and 4}, {days 5 and a}, ..., (days 11 and 12}. 1B} The largest odd number that divides each number must be one of the seven
numbers 1, , 5, ?, 9, 11, 13, so some two numbers must share the same largest odd divisor. The smaller divides the larger. 11} First note that no more than {n2}/2 integers between 2 and Zn can share a
common divisor, since there are that many even integers in that range. Now if each oF CEn,2}=n*{n—I};2 pairs had a common divisor in the set 2,3,4,...,n of
n~1 possible divisors, then one divisor would have to be common to at least
{n*{n*i}!2}l{n1} = n32 } {nerz integers, which cannot be. IQ. Such a set must contain two 1s, or else i5 numbers greater than one would sum
to less than am. How starting with the subset {1,1} and its sums {1,2}, add
each remaining member to the subset in increasing order as long as the
resulting sum set would still be a consecutive set (1,2,...,m}. If you stop
before m'3ﬂ when you were about to add some r to a subset of n numbers, then
r—I is not in the sum set, or else you could sum m+1 by summing m, remouing a subset or sum ri and adding the number r. Since the smallest number not yet
in the subset is at least m+2, you must have {iEFn}{m+2}{=3Bm or n)={i?m+2}f{m+2}. Combining this with m}=n giues you miizISm2>=B or m}15.
But then you are done, since if there's a subset that sums to any number up to 15, each number greater than 15 is the sum oF the complement oF such a subset. 13} Number the computers I to 15 and the printers i to 16. Eonnect printer n
to computers n through n+5. 14} Without knowing which printers are connected to which computers, it's impossible to give an optimal answer to this question. In the worst case, iF
each computer was connected to only one printer, then each dummy printer must be connected to euery real printer, in case its computer requests printing when
any set oF Fiue real printers is already busy. In this case, 24 connections are required. 15} Each of the 23 digits on one disk can match 1e digits on the other disk when superﬁosed in one or 23 diFFerent ways. One oF the superpositions must
therefore aue at least energize = in matching digits. 16} Let ﬂin} be the number of hours spend studying up to and including the nth

distinct integers in the range 1..??. By the pigeonhole principle there are i and J such that niil=n{j}+2ﬂ. so ¥rom dau 1+! to dau J. the student studies

these are less than n+1 numbers long, then by the pigeonhole principle there
must be at least n+1 different subsequences. The subsequence Formed by taking
the last member of each of these increasing subsequences is then a decreasing
subsequence of at least n+1 numbers. I3} tall one oF the people o. By the pigeonhole principle, there are either
three Friends oF n or three strangers to n at the party. IF there are three
friends, then either two of them Form a trio of mutual friends with H, or they all Form a trio of mutual strangers. If there are three strangers, then either
two oF them Form a trio oF mutual strangers with n, or they all Form a trio oF
mutual Friends. ...
