Question 8, If Limelight is never shown again during the festival once Greed is shown,
0:12
then which one of the following is the maximum number of film showings that could occur during
0:16
the festival?
0:18
So we're saying that if we show Greed, we can't show Limelight after that, and then
0:24
asking what is the maximum number of films that can be shown. Well you'll notice, looking
0:33
at Saturday first, if I was going to maximize Saturday I would have two films, one of which
0:38
is definitely going to be L, because only one of G or H can be in.
0:42
Now, I'm going to have G show up last on Saturday because, again, that's where I'm going to
0:49
have G show up. If I place G anywhere else on Thursday or Friday I couldn't have L show
0:54
up on Saturday.
0:57
Because I'm maximizing, I'm going to keep G last on Saturday. Now, instead of having
1:03
G last on Friday I'm going to use L. Then, since I'm maximizing, I know H is my only
1:10
other possibility. Then on Thursday, while I could have technically all three films,
1:17
H, L, and G, I can't place G because then I wouldn't be able to place L again so I'm
1:23
going to go with L and H.
1:26
What will the maximum number of films that could be shown during the festival? Well,
1:33
the correct answer would be (D) . . . six.
