Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why add confusion by naming variables that have no relation to the elements that you are examining? never made sense to me... Rita = r ; Rita father = f gives you a visual on what you are equating.... That said; that variables dont care what they are called :) so x and y is just as valid....
