Here's the problem:

There are 8 people, 4 on each team (4 vs 4). Each persons skill level is rated between 5-40 (5 being a complete noob). The goal is to create the fairest teams possible (the lowest possible difference in skill between team 1 and 2).

Do I need advanced University math knowledge to solve this problem? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Here's a sample player list

John: 10

Mark: 15

Mike: 34

Matt: 23

Bob: 18

Tyler: 13

Conor: 29

Rafa: 25
