Brilliant's Mathematical Contest!

Logic Level 5

In a Mathematics Contest conducted by Brilliant, only the following facts are known to its staff:

  • The number of problems asked in the contest was n4{n \geq 4}.

  • Each problem was solved by exactly four contestants.

  • For each pair of problems, there is exactly one contestant who solved both the problems.

Assuming that the number of contestants is greater than or equal to 4n{4n}, help the staff find the minimum value of n{n} for which there always exists a contestant who solved all the problems.
