    I didn't really understand the wording of the question, at all. Its mega confusing. I was hoping maybe I was over-thinking it, and someone else knew the answer. :P

    <...... s ....|......l........> the smaller, buy definition is never larger then the larger lol... not by twice, not by +2, not by any amount.... sometimes the answer is NaN (not a number) ; DNE (does not exist)
