Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3well... we must prove other options are not right for example suppose a=0 then b=1 c=2 d=3 > contradiction because 0<1<2<3<6 ,,, 6=2*3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if c=0 then a must be negative and b must be positive this is contradiction again since 0>b
