For a finite ordered set P, let c(P) denote the cardinality of the largest subset Q such that the induced suborder on Q satisfies the Jordan-Dedekind chain condition (JDCC), i.e., every maximal chain in Q has the same cardinality. For positive integers n, let f(n) be the minimum of c(P) over all ordered sets P of cardinality n. We prove: {Mathematical expression}
