Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Given...

a + b > p

b > q

Is there no way to place any limits on a in terms of p and q only? I know that one is allowed to add inequalities together but not subtract, but is there any other tricks one can play to solve this?

Thanks,

Natski
