    The moviegoers' club

    Hi Mathal, I don't know, either. :smile: But I would like to point out that "the largest necessary" is equivalent to "the smallest enough". Maybe someone doesn't understand this.

    Saying it is obvius is not a proof. Prove it. :smile:

    The moviegoers' club

    If 23 have voted, then 1 has voted. So 1 is the smallest number. And this is not "advanced math" - it should be found in an introductory logic text.

    The moviegoers' club

    That's right, the way puzzles are worded matters a lot! And it seems you have correctly understood my puzzle. However, the answer to your version (which has nothing to do with the original idea) is "ONE" . If, for instance, 23 members had voted for a movie, then there would be one member who...

    The moviegoers' club

    Hi Mathal, there is at least a movie that received more than 12 votes, necessarily. So, 12 is not the answer.

    Need a real life example that satisfies the property?

    John = {head,body,arms,legs} class_01 = {Mary, Lucy, John} John is a student, and class_01 is a set of students. Is the head of John a student? Is the head of John a student of class_01? The head of John is not an element of the class_01.

    Analysis of Image superimposing using numerical analysis

    Hi Saugata Bose! A digital image (acquired with a digital camera or a scanner, for example) is just a file which describes all the pixels (picture elements) of the image. The "format" of such files is the way the pixels are described. Commonly there is a "file header" based on: the size of...

    Analysis of Image superimposing using numerical analysis

    You could compare the average luminances (and their standard deviations) of the two images, for example. Or the chrominances, if you prefer... :smile: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RGB_color_model http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSL_and_HSV

    Chuck Norris math jokes

    Once, while visiting Fermat, Chuck Norris showed him a wonderful math proof on Numbers Theory, occupying about half page. He took back the paper when left.
