Hi Bunuel,

Can you please explain this question? The user above states that the ratio sum is always 0. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that's always the case. I realize you can just add 1 + 2 + (-3) = 0, but I'm having trouble seeing that as what you're supposed to do. Are there any similar questions you could link? Thanks!
