Plague
It does not seem feasible to determine whether any proposed set of doses is optimal. Instead, each set of doses will be tested. Sixteen test cases have been chosen. Each test case specifies the number of plague cases in each of the 10 districts according to the given probability, namely that each person has 1 chance in 100 of being infected. For each proposed set of doses, the minimal number of deaths will be determined for each test case. For some test cases a certain number of deaths cannot be avoided, since the number of plague cases is more than the total number of doses. Any additional deaths are deemed excess deaths. A solution will be judged correct if the combined number of excess deaths for the 16 test cases is below a preset level. Several sets of doses have been tried, so it is known that this level of deaths can be achieved.
