Here’s a tough math equation. Got this one from an inspirations™ (a slimming and beauty clinic for men and women) advertisement.
XXL to M
We’ll help you trim down to size. Just for Rs.2999/- 5 Kgs Weight Loss + 5 Tummy Trims + 5 Inch Loss Sessions. For details SMS SLIM to 6767.
x = Cost per kg lost
y = Cost per tummy trim and
z = Cost per inch loss session
5x + 5y + 5z = 2999 or
