    if the crab is 5 inches or greater, you can haul it in (keep it). so then if it is less than 5 inches, you must return it to water

    b) if the crab is 5 inches or greater ( c > = 5 ) , you can haul it in and keep it. So then if it is less than 5 inches (c < 5) , you must return it to water. and i assumed c > 0 , since we are talking about crabs , not ghosts
