One gift is nice.
Two gifts are nice, too.
But a set of two gifts aren’t worth twice as much as one.
As set of two gifts is equivalent to about 1.2 gifts.
That means each gift in a set of two is worth .6 gifts.
So if the formula for the value of each gift is is 1.2 ^ (n-1)) / n , then:
- Each gift in a set of 1 = 1 gift (duh).
- Each gift in a set of 2 = .6 gifts.
- Each gift in a set of 3 = .48 gifts.
- Each gift in a set of 10 = .52 gifts.
- Each gift in a set of 17 = 1.09 gifts.
So basically, unless you’re giving a set of 17 gifts, you might be better off just giving one.
Here’s the chart if you’re into that. 🙂
