posted by MAT .
OK so my friend asked me how to solve this question i didn't know how but tried anyway and got the right answer but i want to know if i did it correctly
6 boys are working on 5 go carts. each boy works on more than one cart. it takes one weekend to make one cart. there are 8 conflicts represented by edges on the vertex edge graph. how many weekends will it take?
the answer is 3
the graph looks like this
A
/ \ \
/ \ \
/ \ \
B\/E
\ \ / /
\ /\ /

now imagine the lines quite a bit straighter, but if you need a little help there are lines between
ab
ae
ad
bc
be
cd
ce
de
