I was sent the following message on Twitter: "c could also equal -a or -b or some combination that equals (-a + -b)."This is my friendly response. My original premise in the Tweet basically used these values: a=peopleb=sciencec=prayerx=miners successfully rescueda+b=xa+b+c=x:. c has no effect therefore its value is 0.If "c could also equal -a or -b or some combination that equals (-a + -b)" is incorrect asa+b+(-a)≠x since you need people for the rescue.a+b+(-b)≠x since you need scientific knowledge for the rescue.It's been awhile since I had either a math or logic course so I could still be wrong. Feel free to keep the debate open. I should also point out that one of our contributors, Brenner (who is apparently alive), stated that: If c=-a, then b=x and c=a=0If c=-b, then a=x and c=b=0So c=0. Your criteria just informs us that a or b could also=0, but prayer still does nothing.
