it is dark in room and i went to get two socks of he same colour from my drawer,which contains 26 red,24 blue and 34 brown socks.how many socks do i have to take from he drawer to get at least two socks of the each colour?
The worst case is if you took out 34 brown, then 1 red, and 1 blue.
After that, any colour goes!
Can you work that out?
