Okay I am in a contest and we can use the internet or any resource available and I am stumped on this one, please help me.

A dealer takes a new deck of playing cards and takes out the jokers and then dealt himself 6 cards. He then dealt the remaining cards evenly amongst the other players. There were less than 20 seats at the table. Other than the dealer, how many players were there, and how many cards did each players have?

After he deals himself, there will be 46 card left. He can distribute them equally among two people. There's no other amount of players that can be had where it's possible to distribute the cards equally without having at least 23 people.

Pack was not defined
In some parts of Europe
They usually have a deck of 32 or 36 cards. The numbering includes VII, VIII, IX, X, Under, Over, King and Ace. Some variations with 36 cards have also the number VI.

players in relation to the question can mean one or more, how many players turned up, Answer ONE
Also possible, some games have a meld, have piles to build on or take from, perhaps all does mean remainder after the dealer has had six. Well first establish No. of cards. And if there are any others laid face up on the table relative to the game as in some forms of poker as well as patience that can have more than one player.

Worth noting 'One eyed jacks' can be wild - so can anyone for that matter!
