Been there, done that; wrote the chart.

Be more than happy to see how you worked this out if you have anything new.

My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

    Not continuing only on the Vtrac system with mod 5, I am composing all possible combinations of distinct groups with two elements. On the first run I have 1467 possible sets. That would be 1466 sets different to the vtracs. I will check later on eventual doubles, which I wouldn't have calculated, as I did my preparation with brain, pen and paper. What a puzzle, but more fun than soduko solving!

    With refiltering I get 945 possible distinct sets. That might be it. Anyone else having the same results?

      BY ORDER ASC

      01-23-45-67-89
      01-23-45-68-79
      01-23-45-69-78

      ...

      The count matches with my mathematical formula.
      I extend the algorithm.

        Are there any suggestions for the sequences?
