"You can't have everything. Where would you put it?" - Steven Wright
X = # of beers permitted the night before a race.
Y = length of race
Z= hours until race begins
Hours and beers are always rounded up; miles are always rounded down.
X is always equal to or greater than 1.
The specific formula is as follows:
X = Z/Y + (10% * Z) + 1
