100 Chords (Posted on 2005-11-11) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The numbers 1 to 200 are randomly assigned to points on the circumfrence of a circle. The points are divided into 100 pairs, with no point in two pairs. The two points in each pair are joined by a chord.

Is it always possible to choose 100 pairs so that no chords intersect and the difference between the values in any one pair does not exceed 150?
