Eleven guys on a fishing trip 2014-05-13
From Mark:
Eleven guys are going on a fishing trip and want to rotate so everyone fishes with the other guys with the fewest number of repeats. They want to fish in groups of two with one fishing alone for three and a half days so will rotate seven times. Is there a combination that works and what is it?

11 golfers going on a golf trip for 4 rounds 2014-05-01
From David:
I have 11 golfers going on a golf trip for 4 rounds of golf. I want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to play with everyone at least once but not more than twice. Also, as we are n = 11, we will be composed of 3-4-4 everyday. I am trying to ensure that as few as people as possible play in the group of 3 (golf seems to be more enjoyable for whatever reason in foursomes). i have tried 3 differemt times and can seem to figure it out. Can you assist?

Divisibility by 11 1998-10-28
From Pat Duggleby:
I am an upgrading instructor at a drop-in program in Regina. One of my students is taking General Math 30 through correspondence, and we have run into some confusing instructions. The section is about divisibility rules, and we did just fine up until the rule for Divisibility by 11. The statement is as follows:
If the difference between the sum of the odd-numbered digits and the sum of the even-numbered digits, counted from right to left, is divisible by 11, then the number is divisible by 11.
