Suppose there are N people. Call the number of people somebody knows his "degree" What is the smallest possible degree? What is the largest possible degree (hint: it's not N (why?)) Why can you not have both of these at the same party? So how many different degrees can you have at the same party? And why must two people share one? Good Hunting!
