Pigeon hole principle

Hello All.

I'm learning about Pigeon hole principle and I have understood that " If there are n+1 pigeons and n pigeon holes then there is at least two or more pigeons in one of the pigeon holes."

But when it comes to solving a problem related to it, I was not able to get an idea as how to solve in some of the cases.

I have gone through the below video to learn about it.



Is there any other good videos or pdf's to learn more about it!

Thank you

There are a bunch of videos that follow one after another here



Most are in American English, and one is in British English.

They are somewhat repetitious, but they do provide more problems and explanations.

The basic issue always seems to lie in seeing HOW the pigeon hole principle can be applied (if it can).
