Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
I was down with fever day before yesterday and
this was the best thing that could have happened to me a full day rest! A year
ago, I had blogged somewhere that ‘you know you’re an entrepreneur when you have
to finish your tea sitting on a commode.’
So if you’re the laid back, lazy types (like I WAS) beware being
an entrepreneur. So imagine my pleasure when I had to lie in bed for a full day
having to do nothing! This also gave me a chance to leaf through some books and
discover some problems. So today we are finally commencing what we have been
thinking for a long time (and as usual never found time to start) our prize
winning contests. The first of these, the DI contest is here. Post your
solutions to these problems. We shall collect the name of each entrant giving
correct solutions to all the three DI sets, give them serial numbers, and then
select one winner through random.org. The winner will get a Rs 1000 cash prize.
So keep posting the solutions as you solve them. The deadline for the contest
is midnight, 15^{th} October. Also, if
I do not see my CBT Club members attempting these problems I would personally
kill them. I am feeling that they have grown lethargic and cocky lately. This
is to wake them up from their dreams. There are still two months to go and a
lot of game left. I think
these problems are very hard for all of you to solve but if you do solve them,
the cash prize would be negligible compared with the feeling of achievement
that you would get. The first two problems come from the book ‘Adventures in Problem Solving’ by Shailesh Shirali, a very good book to go through if you all have time. The first set can also be seen in my TG Special thread.

Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
Toughies!!!..Still thinking.. 
Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
Third Problem: Is the answer I? The correct order in that case would be IBKAE with positions 1,2,3,4,5 respectively.

Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
@ Ramya Raghavan & Manish Nath Hi mates. For Qn. 2 In the first row second column one of the two values can be eliminated. This is using the fact that the total no. of wins should be equal to the total no. of losses. Total wins = 26. Hence the entry should be 3 to make the total no. of losses = the total no. of wins. Therefore Team A Lost 3 matches & drew 1 match making its total score as 67. To find out why this should be true always, consider a smaller version of the tournament with say 3 teams A, B, C each playing 3 matches with the other teams. The matches would be (AB),(AB),(AB),(BC),(BC),(BC),(CA),(CA),(CA). For any order of winning/losing in any match i.e. any bracket draw a similar table as in the original Qn. You`ll find that all entries under the WINS column add up to all the entries in the LOSSES column. Try it out to convince yourself. 
Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
Hi Vyom, Yes its true. It never occured to me . 
Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest

FOR QUES NO 1 BOWLING NO SHULD B AS PQPQPQPQPQPQRPRPRPRPRPRPRP SPELLS OF P AS FOLLOWS over run wicket maidens 6 5 2 1/2 6.1 9 6 1/0 i think there is any mistyping or something wrong as R have to bowl 7 overs in which 5 are maiden. so he spend 31 runs in 2 overs and taking 1 wicket. in order to maximize run scored in these 2 overs, we can take(7,11) with one out, but u cant have any option for the second over. R can spent at most 6 runs with 0 wickets. However,the batsman gotten out by Q is C. The batsman unbeaten is K. and the fall of wicket may b as follows: A 6/1 B 14/2 C 20/3 D 26/4 E 31/5 F 35/6 G 42/7 H 53/8 I 59/9 J 59/10 Its difficult to find the batsman gotten out by R.

Hi TG, Problem No 1 did really test my patience and tolerance.Seriously the toughest i have ever encountered. Anyways just took a 4 or 5 days break and started working on the problem yesterday.

So here are the results : Batsman Gotten Out By Q: E Batsman Gotten Out By R: B Not Out Batsman: K

Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
Hi Harsh, I think u r correct in terms of determining no WIn for each Team but no. of losses are looking wrong. As per my understanding No of Win = No of Loss as if some one is winning some one has to loose. When we are adding your values we are getting No of Win = 26 and No of Loss = 21 which is wrong. As well your no. of Draw for team E is looking wrong. For Team C total score should be Odd as per TG's condition but u r getting Even value which is also wrong. Thanks

Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
Hi Half Gadha, Congrats on winning the contest... I solved the 2nd and 3rd Questions myself. In the first problem, how did you distributed the maiden over of the bowlers.... Other things fell into their place... I was really stuck when I have to figure out how to distribute the maiden overs in the spell of P and R. We can give straight maidens from first over and then distribute the runs or we can assume to have those maidens in their last slog overs or distribute between things.... Just let me know how you did that... Thanks and wish you good luck.... Vickram. 
Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
I started from the fact that R has to go for 31 in his two overs out of seven bowled by him (13th to 25th) plus there are only two batsmen who can potentially have scored two boundaries (B and H if I remember correctly). And if you take B to face R in 13th over, things will start falling in perspective. I hope this in addition to my shared solution will be of help. Some more points I would like to share :
H.G. P.S. I don't know why but for some reasons Google docs are inaccessible presently,so am attaching a copy of word doc sent to TG here too.  Hey Vikram,
Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
here's a start up to the first question : 1.name the bowler who's gonna bowl each over number : that's quite easy n m sure almost every1 must have done that 2.now here's a big hint :: B and F have to be on individual score of zero when there's the first bowling change i.e when R comes to bowl in the 13th over. Am not sure how i got here (since it's almost 15 days i did this ) but once i was clear of this , things started felling in place ... then since B came to open with A , u'll have to adjust B such that he does not score neither does he gets out till there's a bowling change ........... 3.The number of possible fours also helped a lot. u won't be sure of the exact number but a rough idea will help. just calculate the maximum n the minimum number of possible fours..... 4.the two match decider overs by R of 14 and 17 runs helps a lot. just see the players who can face n thereby score in the overs , this will take u the second point of my post n things get quite simple then ................. just take care of these points , am sure u'll get thru just thru with my copy cat 6 and therefore not in a nice mood to write more will post the solutions by tomoro (some formatting problem abhi ) but i would seriously suggest every1 to do this on your own until u solve it. The question deserves this much respect or rather much more. awesome question !!!!!!!! i loved it Thank You Tg for these questions am hungry for more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest

Re: Total Gadha's DI Prize Winning Contest  
Hi TG, I know I am late for the contest. But I just want to solve any problem I can get my hands on. And while solving the problems listed above I found Q1 to be dubious. Everyone including honorable HG has taken an assumption that batsman come to bat in order from A to K. But this is not explicitly mentioned and neither seems to be an understood assumption. Correct me if I am wrong? Without this assumption there exists infinite solutions to the same problem. Thanks TG
