Why do we have to have J working on a workpiece?

In the game setup explanation it is said that we know J has to work on any given day, but I dont see how this deduction is made. Could you explain please?

@waterskieb33, happy to help!

The game tells us that "The employees of the Summit Company - J, K, L, and M - work a four-day workweek from Monday through Thursday." Therefore, we know that each employee works each day, including J.

This is further supported by the fact that we have four workpieces that each need to be worked on for four days, and "an employee works on exactly one workpiece" on any given day. This means we need all four employees to work all four days, including J.

Does that make sense? Please let us know if you have any other questions and best of luck with your studies!

I just want to state for the record my name is Jacob Oviedo and this problem is utter bull shit. I want to meet whoever made this problem and give the worse atomic wedgy of his life. This is why bullying is necessary not sufficient in our country.

How has no one responded to my comment. I better get a response very soon or I am telling Sargent Tyrone Mr. steal your bitch the seventh.

Skylar's explanation is on the money. Since each worker is working on one workpiece per day, and each workpiece is being worked on each day, then J has to go every day, as do all of the others.
