Although the use of it = 3 in a number of cultures is hardly evidence of transmission, the situation for it = 10 is more complicated. We shall go into this example more fully later, and our point here is simply that there are no general rules for deciding between transmission and independent discovery.

The third problem - identical with BM 34568, no. 10 apart from the numerical parameters - is solved in an algebraically more straightforward way (cf. note 23): first ((1 - iv)2) is found as 2d2 - (d+w)2, next w as '/2 ([1+w]-(1-w)), and ifinallyas (I+iv)-w.
