    Hi EfficientDiamond,

    Thanks for your question!

    Quite frankly, I have no idea how to find those two numbers in 3 seconds. I don't think that there is a 3 seconds strategy to find those numbers. You could find them with algebra (which would take more than 3 seconds), but it would exceed a primary 6th year level.

    Don't hesitate to reach out again if needed:)
