R (2 , n ) is the minimum number of people gathered together such that there are at least 2 mutual friends or n mutual enemies. Clearly R (2 , n ) n but why is R (2 , n ) = n ? 30. Is it possible to switch the notion of friend/enemy? 36. Consider the number of computers that each computer can directly be connected to. What are some possible values for such numbers? 40. This example was discussed in class. 42. a) Yes. b) Yes. c) Yes (but one has to be careful as just Pigeonhole Principle isn’t enough. 44. Similar to example discussed in class. 47.

If you assume that the ﬁrst box has 1 object, the second one 2, etc., then the number of ways to distribute the objects is 15! 1!2!3!4!5! . However, the way the question is phrased, it only seems to say one of the boxes (not necessarily the ﬁrst) has 1 object, some other box has 2 objects, etc. and in this case the number of ways to distribute the objects is 5!15! 1!2!3!4!5! . 25.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
