    @bonanova Just calculated the groups of three case, and half the time two people are saved, and the other half one person is saved. So, you get the same expected value, but can't guarantee as many.

    @Molly Mae, that doesn't quite work. You can draw some counter examples. It did give me a good idea, though.

    @bonanova, it should be the second post in the thread. Someone upvoted it, so it's no longer in chronological order. Thanks. Honestly, I was going to keep trying to come up with a better one, so thanks for putting me out of my misery. Is there a way to prove that there isn't a *better* solution?
