## Help with this problem please

**Problem:**

1)and is always greater than zero. Are there any restictions needed on for this to be true?__Both__

================================================== ========

EDIT (21 OCT 07):

**Let me clarify what my actual question is. Sorry for not making this clear enough early on.**

**The question I am asking is this:**

**1) What restrictions (i.e. the general rule) are needed on and so that there are some range of values of and to make both and positive?**

**2) What is the restriction (i.e. the general rule) for and such that no matter what combination of and is chosen (but still sums to 100), and is always negative?**

**3) How can you prove your answers to questions 1) and 2) ?**
