While as a seventeen year old the thigs that I have yet to understand are numerous. the fact that this problem has been unsolved from so long is is quite a blow to my ego.Any help that you guys could provide me with in order to shed some light to the way of solving this problem will be greatly apreciated.Sincerely,Jean\015
