What I am trying to do is to randomly place these 50 people into 8 different rooms (with a max of 7 in each room). The trick is to try not having the same letter in the same room. Would any of you be able to help me with this? I have attached a picture of what I am trying to attain.
I have been wrapping my brain around this idea all day, and cannot find a way to begin. I know this is possible, but I have no idea. I look forward to hearing your responses.
That sounds a bit messier. Maybe after getting to that point, you'd then have to come up with a routine to look for sub-arrays with less than 5 elements, and if you find one, randomly choose one of the sub-arrays with more than 5 elements and "move" one of its members to the underpopulated array?
