Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh yeah, how do you define smallest \(a,b,c\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1did u mean a+b+c to be smallest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, you need coprime a,b,c.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, I have \(a = b = c= 0\). ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0smallest amount of 52 // smallest amount of 2 // small amount of 52 and 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[51a + 2b \equiv 0\pmod{84}\]So yup, \(a\) can't be odd.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That means smallest a / smallest b/ smallest c / smallest a+b ?

sauravshakya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So u want to find minimum value of a+b+c???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But they aren't coprime. :\

apple_pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh whoops, then I didn't mean coprime As in like a,b,c don't have any common factors across the three of them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's all good then guys :D
