Maths Problem : A trouble shared is a trouble halved.

A trouble shared is a trouble halved.

The problem : There is a vast difference between the owner of the trouble and the recipient of the trouble through the sharing process.
The owner of the trouble can feel a big relief through sharing - 50%
But the receiver of the trouble share does not take on the equal weight of the trouble.

Let me explain.

For the trouble owner :
I have assumed all troubles are equal
One trouble is defined as big enough to cause problems with day to day living
For the purposes of calculation :The maximum is ten troubles .
Problems deteriorate over time.
One trouble disappearing every ten days.

For the trouble received in sharing :

For every trouble received through sharing the recipient takes on an effective value of 10% of one trouble.

The received trouble expires after 1 days.


Thus, you are able to take on 100 of other people's troubles before reaching capacity.
Your trouble capacity also reduces more quickly over time.

While the trouble owner (TO) a trouble is halved in sharing.

For the trouble receiver they only received 10% of the value of one trouble.


If I had one trouble, and someone told me their trouble,
I would only have 1.1 troubles.
Nowhere near trouble capacity.

So,more accurately ,when troubles are shared :
One trouble becomes 50% in the trouble giver
10% in the trouble receiver.

To update the well known phrase :

For every trouble shared 40% of the trouble goes missing.

So between trouble share and trouble receiver - where does the missing amount of trouble go?


Have I discovered dark matter?

Is it the troubles that go missing when shared?

Or perhaps it isn't dark matter after all.

Perhaps It just doesn't matter.
:)


Now don't spoil it by arguing about individual trouble variance.

That always happens.

In the past, I found that a trouble shared (to one person) is a trouble laughed at by the entire school.
