always be 'n+1' unknowns.

2. An object or bit of information most needed will be the

least available

3. Once you have exhausted all possibilities and fail, there

will be one solution, simple and obvious, highly visible to

everyone else.

4. Badness comes in waves.

1) Given any problem containing n equations, there will
be n + 1 unknowns.
