Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:06:09 +0000http://blog.tanyakhovanova.com/?p=1276#comment-12480I’m having problems understanding how problem one could possibly work. If we label 10 points on a circle then all the even numbers have to be knights or knaves and same for the odd numbers, otherwise there will be a person at the table with both a knight and a knave next to them. Then they can’t say that both of neighbors are one type or the other. I don’t doubt that there is in fact a way to make the problem work, but I can’t seem to reconcile this discrepancy
