SureMath problem solving

The starting equation RESPONDS directly to what is
ASKED FOR and REQUESTS additional information.

The next step RESPONDS to the request.

Supplying the RESPONSE to the requesting equation
produces a RESULT.

The REQUEST-RESPONSE-RESULT structure will solve any problem.

In the problem above, a simple concept is chosen for the basis of
the solution, namely, the whole is the sum of its parts.

Subproblems are indented for clear organization.


This problem solution was developed using SureMath,
