But there’s something in me that just keeps going on. I think it has something to do with tomorrow, that there is always one, and that everything can change when it comes. http://aimingformba.blogspot.com

If \(a<0\) it must be true that \(-a=b-c\); If \(a\geq{0}\) it must be true that \(a=b-c\).

(1) \(c=a+b\) --> \(-a=b-c\). But we don't know whether \(a<0\). Not sufficient. (2) \(a<0\). Question becomes is \(-a=b-c\)? We don't know that. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Form 2: \(a<0\), question becomes is \(-a=b-c\)? Statement 1 confirms this. Sufficient.

Is this approach correct?

For ┃a┃ = b – c to be true , (b - c ) >=0 ie positive

(1) c = a + b : for (b - c ) >=0 to be true a needs to be <=0. Not given, hence insufficient (2) a < 0, says nothing about (b - c ) >=0 Hence insufficient (1)+(2) proves b - c>=0. Sufficient.

I started running back in 2005. I finally conquered what seemed impossible. Not sure when I would be able to do full marathon, but this will do for now...
