    Smile Minesweeper Problem

    I'm not sure if this is a linear algebra problem...Sorry if it does not belong in this section of the forum.

    If I had a 20 by 20 game of minesweeper, what would be the maximum amount of number 2s I could have with any amount of bombs. Could you help me deduce an equation or algorithm for this sort of thing? Right now I have 440 2s, but this is not from any equation or algorithm - its from messing around with a matrix on paper.

    This isn't a question for any class, or homework - its just something I was thinking about.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I have no idea on how to solve it, but how can there possibly be 440 2s, while there are only 400 cells ?

    Lol, I've been on this site for one day now, and I've seemingly already screwed up two problems.

    I don't know where I got that calculation from, but what I meant was 302 twos.
