My solution has only one variable, is the easiest to understand, and involves the least amount of work, yet somebody gives me two thumbs down. That makes a lot of sense !!! Also, Philip P. had basically the same
3-variable solution as Huzefa K. and Philip gets two thumbs down as well. Who's doing the voting ???
If you can't vote responsibly, don't vote at all. If you vote thumbs down on my solution, or anybody's solution, comment on why you voted that way.
