Hints/Tips re: Solution or partial solution ... clarification | Comment 2 of 14 |
(In reply to Solution or partial solution by Dej Mar)

b,g are given values.

Consider a class with 14 girls and 6 boys receiving 8 free tickets that will be distributed randomly (maybe the omission of the way the tickets will be assigned caused the misunderstanding).

There may be any subset of 8 students  (b,g)  from (0,8) ,(1,7),2).

Following my amendmen / clarification, please solve the puzzle for the above example and for the original generic puzzle.
