Talking murky swamp water

ok, so now say for the two scenario's there is a way to gain an advantage over your competitors. the question becomes, how is such a given advantage affected by the number of said riders (say the competitors all have equal skill relative to one another, except for our hero of course)?
such that:
A = hero's advantage over other riders
Y = value of the prize
X = cost of the ride
where Y>X
P = number of riders

fixed cost scenario
there is a merry go round with twelve horses and a brass ring that has value greater than the cost of the ride.
a lone rider will always experience plus ev, cause he is gonna get the brass ring.
but if the ride fills up with more riders and the value of the brass ring and the cost of the ride doesn't change, then there may reach a point where our hero will experience either zero ev or negative ev if the numeric value of the ratio of the value of the brass ring to the cost of the ride isn't high enough.


fill in the blank lol, ______________[/QUOTE]

diminishing cost scenario
but suppose that the carnival had a promotion where the cost X of the ride was reduced by dividing the original ride cost by the number of riders while keeping the value of the brass ring the same.

fill in the blank lol, ______________

I'm afraid Froggo has found better bugs in another pond for the time being, until said bugs become scarce! He's trying to eat as many bugs as possible right now, nothing lasts forever. Gotta eat while the eatin is good.

Don't you have a pasture? That is free food. They leave great fertilizer for the garden too.

Problem is we is in the middle of a dang ole drought. I have talked to a few of the farmers here......they cant remember such a bad year. I think we are sitting at 3 or 4 inches of rain for the whole year here..
We havent had any pasture all year since spring......It's horrible.....The cotton fields will yield nothing here.....unless its irrigated..
Very bad down here....we got maybe 2 inches out of the last tropical storm.....50 miles west they got 6 plus...
We have about ten acres to pasture on but when it isnt growing......well.......
