The Mathematics of "Black Friday"

The Mathematics of  "Black Friday"

A = People with money to spend (represented by the purse)
B = Purchases made on "Black Friday", the first shopping day after Thanksgiving
C = One's mind or mental capacity
The idea here is that many people suffer a loss of mental capacity (-C) that translates into an eagerness to go to extraordinary lengths to obtain merchandise (B) at bargain prices on "Black Friday"
