comment How to test the best combination of ratios to fit inside an overarching ratio?
I think this is a math problem, but could use some improvements in wording. I suspect the use of ratios will confuse or mislead many Readers. If the idea is that a single instance of Container N can hold an assortment of items given by integer counts, e.g. one of A, two of B, three of C, etc., and you want the smallest number of containers (or some other objective) needed to cover a given shipment, then you should probably ask at Math.SE with greater care about the details.

Sure, I'll do a bit of redaction.

comment Virtual method returning a unique collection - how to ensure and hint?
In your example, strings are often ordered lexicographically, so it might be a good way to test for uniqueness if a virtual method were implemented on a "concrete" string-like class. I often use a lexicographic approach to ordering things to trim the search space from "duplicates" of one kind or another.

comment Virtual method returning a unique collection - how to ensure and hint?
When the underlying domain has a canonical ordering, like integers, then sorting the "set" is often a way to impose unique items. However you may be thinking of imposing an arrangement of the (distinct) items on a finite collection, e.g. a list or other "container" class. So I'd guess (from the naming) that "OrderedSetOf..." refers to the latter case, where you basically return n items in a specific order, but the arrangement is not necessarily the "sorted" order. If I meant sorted, I'd say "SortedSetOf...".

A "unique value collection" is a set in mathematics. Of course "set" by itself can be a (useful) verb, so to avoid ambiguity many times "SetOf" or similar phrasing will be chosen.

@RobertHarvey: Yeah, I wanted to work the work "idiosyncratic" into my answer, but it sounded too... idiosyncratic.
