Another Chain in Payment (Posted on 2003-11-17) Difficulty: 2 of 5
You have 23 links in a gold chain (just like before), and will pay one link per day to someone. Which two chain pieces should you break in order to pay this person?

What would be the longest chain you could have in order to pay this person (one each day) by breaking 3 pieces in the chain?

Is there a rule for how many days you could pay someone under the same circumstances if you could break x pieces in the chain?
