How can OA be B?

If v-k = 6, then v = 10 and k = 4.

Or, v = 1000006 and k = 1000000

Is 10^3 - 4^3 = 1000006^3 - 1000000^3?

Don't think so.

(1) │y + z│ = │y│ + │z│
(2) │x + y│ = │x│ + │y│

The more I deal with these types of problems, the more I am convinced that the "logic based approach" is the only...
