### Re: Some sums

I think it is just the opposite. I think people breakdown sometimes from lack of exertion.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Yes, they may not even know it until they try to exert.

No danger of that. Most do not ever exert themselves.

Hmmm, that's right.
