Interesting. I wasn't entirely sure yet how I was going to deal with 3
unknowns in two equations, but essentially would have tried iterating. (Hmm,
which is essentially what I did in my thought process.)
Another constraint I recognized is that the number of 4 for a penny pencils
must be an even number.
I didn't fully understand your reference to Gauss--did Gauss have a specific
procedure to solve problems like this?
