Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0mn = 44 +2m+2n ; yet 2n = m44 mn = 44 +2m +2m 88 mn = 44 +4m 44 = mn +4m 44 = m(n+4) m = 44/(n+4) ; n!= 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m = 44+2n = 44/(n+4) (44+2n)(n+4) = 44 44n +176 +2n^2 +8n = 44 2n^2 +52n +17644 = 0 2n^2 +52n +132 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(n^2 +26n + 66) = 0 n^2 +26 = 66 (n+13) = sqrt(66 + 169) n = 13 + sqrt(103)
