THE FOOTBALL PLAYERS.





(Problems Concerning Games.)
"It is a glorious game!" an enthusiast was heard to exclaim. "At the
close of last season, of the footballers of my acquaintance four had
broken their left arm, five had broken their right arm, two had the
right arm sound, and three had sound left arms." Can you discover from
that statement what is the smallest number of players that the speaker
could be acquainted with?
It does not at all follow that there were as many as fourteen men,
because, for example, two of the men who had broken the left arm might
also be the two who had sound right arms.
