Hi ganesh;

Okay, thanks!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Lots of them, if I do not make a math mistake then I will make a copy mistake. If you do not make a copy mistake then I will read the question wrong. We can not be perfect.
