This isn't even my homework, but I'm disagreeing on a friend on what it's asking.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Dunno what forum to ask it in lol, sorry.

"Using only different combinations of those variables and the addition and subtraction operators, print all the positive weights that can be measured with 9, 3, and 1 pound measures (1-13). "

Do you think it means necessarily use all 3, or can you just pick (for example) one of the weights by itself and count that as a combination?

(don't need help doing the actual question, whichever it turns out to be)
