Re: Puzzle

Unless they raise the ceiling of the room... or lower the floor. In that case, additional people can get in from other rooms above or below. And the number of managers to be thrown out will change. It all depends on who gets in from above or below.

Of course there are more. There are infinity... but with the specific request that you made in your puzzle, there is only 1 answer. Unless... unless you want to bring a chain-saw into the room

Rather than laying off 50 managers, they could ask 1 manager to become a developer.

But in that case nobody leaves the room. Question was, how many need to go out of the room? And if you want to argue about aesthetics and philosophy and logistics... once a manager always a manager. So how manager become developer? How? Tell me... how

It's better than your convoluted solution to change the dimensions of the room or redefine the word room in metaphysical terms.

Re: Puzzle

nice Question

then 74.5 managers & 0.5 developers need to move out.

And the earlier answer of 50 managers will also be true.
