You're a computer programmer, and the program you're writing has numeric variables A and B. You need the computer to switch the variables so that the number in variable A becomes variable B, and the number in variable B becomes variable A. Adding a third variable would use more memory though, so how can you do that switch without using another variable? Use commands such as B=B-A to assign a new value to B.

How about this way? A = A + B B = A - B A = A - B :D | |
