Game Setup

I am confused why the 4-1 and 3-2 set up is an option in the game explanation when it says at least one task is done each day. So shouldn't all the potential setups occupy three spots (ex. 3-1-1)?

Make sure to note that the setup states that everything must be done in "at MOST three days." This means that we can have the partition built in two or three days (we know from the rules that T and P can't be on the same day so there are at least two days). Thus, we have two-day options and three-day options.

Hope that clears things up! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi Lsatmax!
Why in writing the possibilities you come up with that one you wrote in 1-4; 3-2; 3-1-1; 2-2-1
I mean I understand the reason for numerical possibilities i.e. 4-1 or 3-2 or 2-2-1 or 3-1-1 but I don't understand why you wrote out each numerical with a particular assignment? As long as we keep P and T in separate groups we are good, aren't we? I couldn't understand why you put each variable in particular group? The explanation does not cover it. For example how come that in 4-1 numerical possibility you put FWS together with T and not P? the same goes for other numerical possibilities you wrote e.g. 2-2-1 or or 3-1-1? I see that you are using the possibilities you wrote in attacking the questions. So it seems that matters but an explanation is missing on how you reach that particular assignment of variables to each group. Please explain. Thanks!

Ooops! I figured out where I was wrong. I didn't read the scenario carefully where it says the actions are to be done in order. Thanks for the game and set up.
