25 runners
« on: April 07, 2018, 09:04:41 AM »

There are 25 runners. We don't have a stopwatch. In one run max. 5 runners can run.

How many runs do you need to get the best 3 runners?

Maybe yes maybe not. The only clear think is that thar must me more than 5 runs. If someone will find better than 11 runs, than we will know you were wrong

1 to 25 race in 5 races and 1, 6, 11, 16 , 21 win.....................number 2 and 3 were 2nd and 3rd to number 1

1 6 11 16 21 race and number 1 wins so 1 is fastest, 21 is last.........

2 3 6 11 16  race and 2 wins and 3 is 2nd

1, 2 ,3 are fatest

7 races

yorkjoss theory looks better than dealer wins.
Maybe someone can get less runs than yorkjoss? Can anyone get theory for less runs (6 or 7)? Or you think yorkjoss  is corect?
