How can I organise 13 players playing in groupings of 4,3,3,3 for 3 rounds of golf in a way that all play with all others but a minimum of times with the same players(?)If possible, nobody should play in the 4 ball more than once. I would be grateful for an answer/proposal! Thank you, LR

When will the calendar be the same as 2002? 2002-02-20
From John:
When will the calendar be the same as 2002? I know the answer is 2013, but I don't know how to answer this mathematically, or if it is possible to do so. This is a ninth grade level algebra question my daughter received from her teacher. Any ideas?
