We have a couple of methods but would you be able to provide a little more context to your question? We are struggling to pin down the precise nature of the question. 

Could you please provide us with where you found it and potentially any parts of the question that preceded this one? We would like to double-check that our answer is the correct interpretation of this question.

This is from the 2009 Institute April paper, which Matt has kindly attached below. I was wondering if there is a different way of solving the question as I don't quite understand the workings in the memo. This is a separate question on its own with no preceding parts.
