    That's a different question... you asked if anyone can provide a solution and the SOA/CAS did. Anyways, what part of their solution confuses you? It's a pretty straightforward one so I would just be recreating theirs. Point out specific steps that they do that you do not understand.

    sorry for the misleading question...what i do not understand is, why is it in thounsands? i mean C= 60 000 or 2C = 120,000...?

    I consider that part of the solution unclear. If you don't suddenly put it in terms of thousands, it should work.

    From the looks of it, it's a mistake on their part, not really a big one IMO.
