    Hello,pls kindly help me to work out answers to these.
    I have numbers -1 to 99 to pick two numbers from,when -1 to 99 is arrange in five numbers.
    The five numbers should be arrange in a way that,when i write out two numbers from -1 to 99,i should be able to find these numbers appear in at least one set of the five numbers..
    pls show how these five numbers should be arrange so that any two numbers that is picked from -1 to 99 will be found in any of the five numbers..
    For example, am to pick from -1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-6,-8,-9,1,2 to 99
    These number are to be arrange in five numbers like
    10,-1,44,99,55
    70,88,4,8,80.33
    7,-9,-2,40,87,98,,etc
    So that when i pick any two numbers from -1 to 99, The two numbers i picked should be found in at least one
    sets of the five numbers arrange..
    pls state how all these five numbers should be arrange.
    thanks

    ***-1 to 99 means -1,0,1,2,3,......,98,99; that's 101 numbers

    For example, am to pick from -1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-6,-8,-9,1,2 to 99

    ***2nd -6 should be -7? Typo?
    ***Anyway, what you show here is 108 numbers.
    ***That's NOT possible to arrange in groups of 5 numbers.

    These number are to be arrange in five numbers like
    10,-1,44,99,55
    70,88,4,8,80.33
    7,-9,-2,40,87,98

    ***what is 80.33 : typo?
    ***why do you show 6 numbers in 3rd line?
    Problem seems to have been translated from another language.

    Perhaps someone else here will understand what you're asking.
    I'm sorry, but I don't...
    I'm just an imagination of your figment !

    Thank you for your response.
    Sorry,the one showing 6numbers was a mistake.
    pls what am saying is that i have numbers from minus -1 to 99,to pick two numbers from
    -1 to 99,should be arrange in groups of five numbers,and since it is 108.
    pls it can be -1 to 110
    to allow even 5numbers throughout the arrangement
    The bottom line is that when i pick out any two numbers from -1 to 110
    i should be able to find the two numbers in at least one set of the 5numbers.
    thanks

    Me arranging 6numbers in my post was a mistake,and since it will be 108, we can make make it 110numbers
    so that 5numbers arrangement can be possible.
    What i want is to arrange in the numbers in five set so that,when i write out any two numbers i should be able to locate it in at least one set of the five arrangement
