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

well, i'm not so sure anyway ....

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

Let x be the number of seats b/w 3 and 18 on either sides (excluding 3 and 18).
n=2x+2
x=(18-3)-1=14
So,
n=28+2
n=30

Brilliant you guys are!

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???
