Hi bhavik.shah;

Welcome to the forum!

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Hi bhavik.shah;

Your second method is algebraically the same as my method:

For 3 values a,b,c: Mine is on the left and yours is on the right.

(a + c)b = ab + cb
