If the seven teams are G , Xe, Xa, K, Z , V , and N and they have each played four times with the following results : G vs N = 3-1 such that G gains 3 point and N gains 0 points G vs Z = 2-0 " " G " 3 " " Z " 0 " G vs Xa = 2-0 " " G " 3 " " Xa " 0 " G vs K = 1-1 " " G " 1 " " K " 1 " Xe vs N = 2-0 " " Xe " 3 " " N " 0 " Xe vs K= 2-1 " " Xe " 3 " " K " 0 " Xe vs V = 3-1 " " Xe " 3 " " V " 0 " Xe vs Z = 1-2 " " Xe " 0 " " Z " 3 " Xa vs K = 1-1 " " Xa " 1 " " K " 1 " Xa vs V = 2-0 " " Xa " 3 " " V " 0 " Xa vs N = 2-1 " " Xa " 3 " " N " 0 " K vs Z = 3-1 " " K " 3 " " Z " 0 " Z vs V = 2-2 " " Z " 1 " " V " 1 " V vs N = 2-2 " " V " 1 " " N " 1 " then the classification for the seven teams is as follows : team gamesp~d won tied lost points G 4 3 1 0 10 Xe 4 3 0 1 9 Xa 4 2 1 1 7 K 4 1 2 1 5 Z 4 1 1 2 4 V 4 0 2 2 2 N 4 0 1 3 1 What I am wondering is whether it is possible to write some program such that from the observed gamesplayed and points you could determine the games won and/or tied and/or lost , ie whether you could reveal the third and fourth and fifth columns of information, the won-tied-lost columns . As a matter of fact , the points held by G , which is 10 , given that it has played four games has to be a construct of 3*3 + 1*1 .The 9 held by Xe is also coming from 3 wins and 1 loss .The 7 points held by Xa is also clear that it must be coming from 2 wins and 1 tie and the other is a loss . The 5 points held by K have to come from 1 win and 2 ties and 1 loss . The 4 points held by Z might be vague in that it could be 1 win 1 tie and 2 lost OR 0 win 4 ties and 0 lost .The derivation of the points held by V and N is also clear as crystal . Obviously , the more games played , and the more teams competing, the more difficult it gets to derive the teams' won-tied-lost distribution.It would be quite interesting if this could be resolved by some program . ----- Original Message ----- From: McKenna, Timothy <Timothy.McKenna@nera.com> To: <statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu> Sent: Friday, November 05, 2004 10:36 PM Subject: st: RE: Re: program > No matter what you program/language you are working in, you still won't be able to differentiate if a team does: > > observed: 6 points, 6 games played > > The possible actual game results are: > 0 wins, 6 ties > 1 win, 3 ties > 2 wins, 4 losses > > If you have the results for all seven teams in the league you might be able to determine that there is only one combination of results that could generate the observed league wide standings.
