Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe your choice is incorrect. Lets look at it this way. m SHOULD = 430. They want m +/ 20 so that's 410<430<450. This Q is set up funky tho...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well see this is the confusing part. m  20 = ? is that ( < or = ) 430?? m +20 ( < or = ) 430???
