```I think I am not really understanding the rules.

Let us abbreviate a sequence of n n's, then m m's, and so on, as [n,m...];
for example, "2,2,3,3,3" would be written "[2,3]".

Then Eric's S% is [1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14]; T% =
[1,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14]; U% = [2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14]. Then
he says that these are the only such 100-sequences. What is wrong with,
say, [1,99]? Or [4,5,6,12,30,43]? What additional constraint is there
besides that it must be a partition of 100 into blocks of distinct sizes?
