Thank you johnph77. The significance was intended to be on the question itself .....and ..... if one could recreate the 2 groups already there. They were already broken down into their only possible groups..... i.e. doubles, trips, and singles. It also ask the reader how they would approach recreating those 2 specific groups in the question.
Perhaps.... I should have left out the 5 digits all together ......and just started with the 10 pairs only. This way ....it would have forced the reader to stay on point ......and deal with the pairs in attempting to recreate the groups that were already there ....and already dissected .
Because the recreation can't be done using just the 5 digits alone...... they must be used to form the 10 pairs first ......and only then is it possible to recreate those 2 groups shown.
.....the 5 digits were just there to show how the 10 pairs were formed. The focus had to be on the 10 pairs rather than the 5 digits .....otherwise the groups couldn't have been recreated. At least those 2 groups shown anyway.
johnph77 .....allow me to say ..... I always enjoy seeing your post and the visualizations you've presented over the years.....and I always appreciate your input... even though I'm pretty sure P-3 isn't your favorite game. So...thanks again.
