I say 50 because *you* are already there

nope: 50 invited, only 1/2 came, so 25 invited + 25 guests (1 each) gives 50 people, PLUS YOURSELF!! if you didn't come, what's the point of organizing your party? 50+1=51, right?!?! :blink:

You are having a party and invite 50 of your closest friends. You tell them they could each bring one person. ONly half of the people that you invite come, how many people are at the party.

Spoiler for hmmmm

Does seem like a waste of money, for 50 CLOSEST friends - that's a lot of friends, and they ALL have to be close??? and then they bring just any old body, or are they so close that they don't bring just anyone along and so the 'CLIQUE' has no one else to bring.

- so your saying half the invited and no guest +me+YOU (counting) - you were not there, you are not in my friends list - I just checked!

- the party was last night and they all came - it was a surprise party and nobody told me about it, including the party managment, there were....
51 incuding me.

Obviously I'm joking and your welcome to come to the next party - if it's not for my closest friends - then you don't have to gate crash.

56 because 50 people invited half come=25x2 which are suposed to bring someone and yourself


50-1/2=25x2+1=51
