What's the most efficient way to drop the eggs i.e. reducing the number of times you need to drop eggs and still able to determine the answer? You are allowed to break all three eggs, as long as you identify the correct floor afterwards.
After you've solved the above problem, generalize. Define the "break floor" as the lowest floor in a building from which an egg would break if dropped. given an n story building and a supply of m eggs, find the strategy which minimizes (in the worst case) the number of experimental drops required to determine the break floor.
