I'm not a mathematician, I'm a programmer. A client wants a spreadsheet to do the following. I would just Google it, but I don't know what maths terms to use to look it up. I think it's not possible, but would love someone to either a) prove it can't be done, or b) tell me it can be done, and how. Thanks!
Take 32 people and group them into 32 groups of 4, such that no 2 people ever meet more than once.
The original spec said that there are 4 months, with 8 meetings of 4 in each month. Each person goes to 1 meeting a month, but should never see anyone they have been to a meeting with before.
I'm sure I've tagged this wrong, and I'm sure someone out there will find this trivial. Thanks for all input Andy
