One day, King Arthur invited a number of honored guests to dine at his table of tables. Everyone took their seats at evenly spaced intervals from one another.
After sitting down, two lovely women in attendance, Guinevere and Nimue, were amused to find that neither of them saw a woman sitting left, right, or directly across the table.
What's the minimum number of people that could be sitting at the Round Table?
Did you try using the Memo function to draw a picture of that table and the people around it?
If you did, possibly you overlooked something important.
A noble answer!
Five people is correct.
The image above shows how they would be seated around the Round Table.
The trick part is realizing that no one is sitting directly across from any of the diners.
