Talk:Fairshare between two and more

From Rosetta Code

Perl 6 count of how many turns each person gets[edit]

Whilst important to some degree, the sequence minimises any advantage that going first/going earlier might give. I've blogged twice, here, and here about it and the sequence appears many times in science and maths. (Try this paper (PDF), for example. --Paddy3118 (talk) 23:54, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

I have to say, I kind of missed the point of the task initially so was not really sure what it was demonstrating. The actual algorithm was simple, the reason for it escaped me. After reading your links, the lightbulb lit. I removed the "number of times each person goes" which was kind-of pointless, and added a "fairness correlation" calculation showing the relative fairness to the Perl 6 entry. --Thundergnat (talk) 13:43, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
