    aeroflix, I truly hope that no one answers this before you post your attempt.
    This is an excellent question designed to teach a fundamental concept.
    Note that the question says “What is one possible value…”
    In fact there can be infinitely many answers. But all are in a definite range.

    So please give it a try.
