Pigeon-Hole Principle

It's amazing how a very simple and obvious thing in life become a mathematical principle and helps to prove many complex results. Pigeon-Hole principle is one such concept.

But this principle becomes very useful in many occasions to prove that there exists some answer for a problem.
