Here's the thread, look at the last two pages, can anyone come up with a formula that anyone could learn it is so simple, that will lead with the suggestions here to an outcome that will in theory and on average mean that each prisoner is there for the least number of days.

I'm nowhere near competent enough to prove any mathematical theory this complex, but maybe you number crunchers could do it?

Feel free to use any of the suggestions or your own.

Does anyone know the solution, if there is one off the top of their heads?
