1. ## [SOLVED] Logic Questions

Nestor, Portia, Romeo, Sebastian, Tybalt, and Walter are all cast members of a Shakespearean play. They meet every week to practice.

Last week Romeo arrived after Walter but before Portia.

Tybalt arrived after Sebastian but before Portia.

Nestor arrived after Sebastian but before Romeo.

Question 1: What is the minimum number of people who could have arrived after Sebastian?

Question 2: What is the maximum number of people who could have arrived before Romeo?

Thanks.

Nathan, this is not a homework problem.

Write each of their names on a piece of paper and then shuffle them around until it makes sense.

Here's another one.

There are 18 people at a dance. Each of them is given a number, 1 through 18. #1 realizes at some point during the dance that everyone is paired off such that the numbers of the two dancers add up to a perfect square. Who is #1 dancing with?

...
Who's ray?

And the phrasing sounds like a homework question to me as well.

Friends,
This is not a homework assignment. I'm going through some logic puzzles and the answer is in the back of the book but it seems to be wrong to me.
So I wanted to confirm my suspicion with the help of the Ubuntu Community.
