since the Farreri seated-wheel is a wheel ...the position of any two seats toward e/other is not fixed...it changes according to the rotation of the wheel around its centre ...the case in which seat 18 is in front of seat 3 is that they're two ends of a diameter of the wheel and they're opposite when this diameter is parallel to the horizon . Since they're a diameter, we have 18-3=1/2 n ---> n=30

half circle makes = (18-3) seats=15 seats
full circle makes = 15x2=30 seats

The OA is 30. However, I thought this way (which is oviously wrong). The opposite of 3 is 18. The opposite of 2 should be 19. The opposite of 1 should be 20. (-_-) I still don't know why the OA is 30. And I do not understand laxie's / gsr's / himalaya's explanations. Could somebody draw a picture of that wheel for me, please???

laxi did gr8 job. i think the credit goes to laxi and his gf.
