Need help with problem
Posted:
Sep 28, 1998 5:01 AM


Hi,
I need help with the following problem:
I need the highest i ( that means an expression i < z) that meets
( view this with a fixed character size )  i * e  \  j  /    <= x _ m _ j
or in TeX
\sum\limits_j \left\lfloor \frac{i*e_j}{m} \right\rfloor \le x
You can assume e_1+...+e_n < m and i>=0, if that helps.
I thought for two weeks on this problem but wasn't able to come up with a solution. I hope someone of you can.
Thanks in advance
arnd.
