So it's 7 tries with 3 balls, I assume? How does that work, anyway? My first guess was binary search until you have two balls left, but that proved not to be optimal.

Actuelly, it's 7 if you have an infinite number of balls. Or just a large enough one. Like 7, for example. :wink:

Ah. That's binary search. Assume it breaks at floor 100. You have the following tries:

50
75
88
94
97
99
100

Yup, that's 7 tries. Any idea how you would go about it if you had, say, 4 balls?

Or: More than two balls and not enough balls for a binary search?

0%. And I think that's quite an accomplishment. I had to guess them all, so the chance of this happening is 0.056.

Question one? Question one is obvious. Question four is the really evil one. You're actually the only one to have gotten it right so far.
