I think it is still up for grabs, as I have not proven anything but simply given an single example.


The prize should go to anyone who can come up with an explanation for families of arbitrary sizes rather than of size 3

@DeGe I think you got caught in his cleverly designed trap


Spoiler for For a family of three

In Topic: Guess 1 out of 100 numbers

07 November 2013 - 06:32 AM

@BMAD I think it also excludes the numbers that nobody has


for 4 people and numbers 1 to 4 a possibility is


Person 1 has  4

1 2 2


Person 2 has 2

1 2 4


Person 3 has 1

2 2 4


Person 4 has 2

1 2 4


due to possible overlap no-one can be certain which number they have.

I think this is what he means by "These numbers are entirely random and independent of one another, meaning there can be duplicates (and consequently missing numbers). "
