cheating for what? I don't know how to do this question so I'm posting. And you spelled "site" wrong.

Here we have 3 equations and 4 unknowns. I believe this problem is indeterminate.

The best I can do is give you a in terms of either b, c or d.

jeez people are so touchy these days @sussycake there are more variables than equations here, so either there is a typo, one equation is missing, or the problem is posed incorrectly you can solve for one variable in terms of others, but you cannot assign a number to the variables
