You have a drawer full of socks, 20 red socks (all identical) and 12 blue socks, and it is dark in the room. How many socks should you grab, to assure that you have at least one matching pair?

Try to say this
Mr. Knox, please......

Through three cheese trees
three free fleas flew
While these fleas flew,
freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made
these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made
these trees' cheese freeze.
That's what made these
three free fleas sneeze.

hi john
i think it would be 3 thats if the blue are all identical as well
3 socks would then be either 3 blue or red or a pair of one and an odd one of the other

Correct Terry. Wait at the end of your street and I will eventually get to you with the prize. Well done ;-)

I thought it might be a thread about Boston Red Sox. They play in blue socks :-S
