The original problem as I found it had only part [2], when I typed it in I accidentally entered it wrong and for some reason put what is part [1].  When this was vetted in the queue someone suggested this was too easy and I should add part [2].  I did not notice my error at the time.  So by happy coincidence even though I entered the question wrong, it got fixed without my realizing it and we got an extra problem as well!
