Jill and Debby agree to play a 6-event contest. There will be six events; each event has one winner and is worth a certain number of points.
Here are the events:
F (Floor Show) 29 points
P (Pencil) 20 points
M (Mishmash) 16 points
N (No-Car) 15 points
W (Whiskey) 10 points
H (Hamper) 4 points
Jill wins if she gets 42 points or more.
Otherwise Debby gets 53 points or more and wins.
Neither Jill nor Debby is fond of arithmetic and each finds it tedious
to calculate which set of events they need to win. Can you help them?
Replace the point scores for the six events (along with the players'
point targets) with smaller positive integers that leave the players'
goals (the list of event subsets they need to win) unchanged.
