    is this possible?

    hello

    can you tell me please if there is a solution to this problem:

    a, b, c are percentages (10%, 35%, anything etc)
    x y z are money amounts

    Given that:
    a < b < c
    x + y = z

    can we have this?

    ax + by > zc
    or at least equal

    thanks

    You can say that a,b & c are numbers between 0-1 (iff your max percentage 100%)
