Some Thoughts re(2): Who needs p and q? (SPOILER) | Comment 4 of 5 |
(In reply to re: Who needs p and q? (SPOILER) by Federico Kereki)

Oops, painting face red... K Sengupta was quite subtle with his reference to a "minor typographical error"... a few little, short, smallish, dashes went AWOL!

OK, the answer is -2, -2, -1, -1, and 6 instead of 2, 2, 1, 1, and -6.
