## Challenge #247: Pairing Partners

8 - Asteroid
Spoiler

Decided not to look at the wikipedia page as an idea hit me straight away so the logic may be different but it works. Made a batch macro to do this but I could have easily made it an iterative one.

This solution will work for any even number of people. I enjoyed this.

9 - Comet

Matches criteria where no pairing is repeated

10 - Fireball

14 - Magnetar

Implemented the Wikipedia solution in Alteryx, but it will work for even or odd numbers of people 🙂

Used the formula from wiki as the iterative check:
``([Max]-1) != ([Engine.IterationNumber]+1)​``

Hi,

This was a super cool challenge. Learning the way how to use the Circle method was really fun!

13 - Pulsar

Just for fun, an implementation of the Schurig table method, which will work for odd and even counts.

Was a bit challenging to get my head around at first but understanding the rules for the wiki helped!
