How many players are on the football team? 11 + 3(reserves)?
Then plus Gitta is 15 contacts.
"Gitta and all the team have different numbers of contacts apart from Amy. Amy has the same number as Ally."
This doesn't make any sense. If Ally is part of the team, she would not have the same number of contacts as Amy as shown in the above first sentence.
...or is Ally part of the team?
Then how are these statements true if Ally is also on the team?...
"Gitta and all the team have different numbers of contacts apart from Amy.
"Amy has the same number as Ally."
I get it now... for example Amy and Ally may have "eight" phone numbers, but those 8 people that they have are not all the same.
The Coach has the phone numbers like this:
S= Starter (up to 11 players)
R= Reserve (up to 3 players)
But whether someone is a starter or a reserve may not matter right now... I'm putting them into excel right now.
I'm experimenting with it to make sure it specifies all conditions...
Is Gitta a player also?
I made an interactive spreadsheet that gets me to 7.
It's an odd number that is not 9 that satisfies the conditions.
I randomly checked the boxes to see if I could get a count that would fit.
What I had to do was to make sure that if I put an 'x' into one person's phonebook, then I had to do it for another:
For example: If I put Player #8's number in player #3's phone book, then I have to also put an 'x' for #3 in player #8's phonebook.
But that last questions may have some ramifications also...
If the difference bewteen first team and reserve groups matters, then we also would need to know whether Amy and Ally are reserve or first-team starters.
