    If I isolate the variable p, I'll have:

    ##p_1 = 1h_1##
    ##p_2 = 2h_2-h_1p_1##
    ##p_3 = 3h_3-h_2p_1-h_1p_2##

    So, my question is: BTW, would be true that:

    ##p_1 = 1h_1##
    ##p_2 = 2h_2+h_1p_1##
    ##p_3 = 3h_3+h_2p_1+h_1p_2##

    ?

    EDIT: I'm asking because with base in other formulas seems that there is some symmetry between the signals...
