1. ## Arranging Numbers in five,and pick two numbers that will be found from -1 to 99

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

Perhaps someone else here will understand what you're asking.
I'm sorry, but I don't...
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
