Hey Chuanhe! As Michael has mentioned, when marking we will be eyeballing all solutions with respect to our own sample (rather than doing a automated check) - so you can have faith that in this instance, provided you get 'one' of the equal numbers, it will be 'correct'. As a fan of the keep-it-simple solution (and based on the approach in the lab) it is likely clear what the 'simplest' approach would be. Hope this helps, Ryan
