A certain number of persons (for example 100) choose the days of the week they prefer for a meeting, a fest, an event. The day preferred by most of the persons (for example 40) is Monday. If the meeting is every Monday, at the end of the year the number of persons who partecipated would be the greater, but the percentage of persons would be the same (40%) - for hypothesis, if one person does not indicate one day, he will never be able to partecipate on that day. How do you calculate the days to alternate to satisfy the greatest number of persons AND the biggest percentage of them?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(Every person can indicate one to seven days. We know of course the distribution of the votes)
