What Do You Know About The Mice Problem?

Often called the mice problem, this is a mathematical problem in which a predefined number of mice (or any other animal) are placed at specific points of a regular polygon. In the mice problem, each mouse moves towards another mouse in a certain direction and when they all meet, the problem is determined.
