Calclulating SalesI don't know why but I am stuck on this problem. Can someone please help? #2 20130509 02:21:14
Re: Calclulating Saleshi mom You also know n > f. That still leaves a lot of possible answers. eg. n = 40 and f = 0 OR n = 39 and f = 2 etc etc. Is there more information? Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #3 20130509 03:24:42
Re: Calclulating SalesThere is a total of 13 solutions at the moment.

Re: Calclulating SalesHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130509 03:36:08
Re: Calclulating SalesYes, sorry. There 14 of them.

Re: Calclulating SalesAh, yes. With that detail the answer is unique and it is the same as your answer.
