Labeling Minimum (Posted on 2016-08-25) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Label one disc as “1”, two discs as “2”, three discs as “3”,…., sixty three discs as “63”.
These 1+2+3+...+63 = 2016 labeled discs are put in a box.
Discs are then drawn from the box at random without replacement.
(i) What is the minimum number of discs that must be drawn in order to guarantee drawing at least ten discs with the same label?
(ii) Will the answer change if discs were drawn from the box with replacement?
