# Pigeonhole Principle

If you have 12 pigeons and there are only 11 roosts, then at least one roost will be quite cozy.

I have 2343 pairs of gray socks, 3212 pairs of pink socks and 6525 pairs of blue socks. Everything is mixed in my drawer (I'm a bit of irresponsible, sorry about that.). As there was no light, I was not able to identify the color of the socks. How many of the socks did I need to take to match one pair?
