Week 3 - Best Friends clues (1)

```MATH 1020Q – Problem Solving
Assignment 4: Best Friends
Due: February 13th, 2020
Clue Sheet
There are six college students sitting on one of the UConn buses. Three are sitting on each side of the
bus, facing each other. They are all friends, but each person considers one person in the group to be
their best friend. You must determine for each person: what their favorite school activity is, where they
are sitting on the bus, and who they consider their best friend to be. Justify all your conclusions!
The seats on the bus are labeled as follows:
Seat 2
Seat 3
Driver’s
Seat
Across from
Seat 1
Next to
Seat 4
Seat 5
Seat 6
Given:
Only one person participates in each activity (there is only one choir member, etc). Friendships
might not necessarily be mutual (Person A’s best friend may be Person B, but Person B’s best
friend is not necessarily Person A, but they could be).
