comment Find the correct betting combination
@AlexeyBurdin is it really 3,5,7,17,22 ? I mean, if you bet t/3 on the first, you will only have 2t/3 left if it wins. With a total bet of t, it's a loss. Or you mean you also recover your bet, but I thought it was the meaning of the first "Rs.1" in what you get.

comment Find the correct betting combination
I guess $Rs$ means rupees (you may remove the money symbol, as it's useless, and is unclear in many countries). Is the gain proportional to the bet? I mean, if I bet $n$ rupees on team $5$ and I win, will I win $21n$ rupees?

Thanks! I'm glad we finally get the same answer. :)

I don't find the same answer, but I have a doubt :) Do you take the number of possibilities of combinations into account? I mean for the (1,1,1,2) case for instance, there are $5 \choose 2$ ways to place the pair. You don't seem to take the order into account at all (hence the 2598960), but I'm not sure it's correct, since the different "patterns" ((1,1,1,1,1), (1,1,1,2)...) don't have the same number of possibilities.

comment If $\det A=1$ and the matrices $A^{2015}$ and $A^{2017}$ are integer, is $A$ an integer matrix?
Even simpler: $A^2$ is an integer matrix, so $A^{2016}=(A^2)^{1013}$ is also an integer matrix. No need for recursion, though it also works of course. Now check determinant, and apply the same trick as above to get $A^2$, and you'll find $A$.
