According to your numbers, as someone read foreign language literally, I would formulate it as follows: If at least two extreme values happens simultaneously, let call that "Extrema Date". Extreme value is either 100 or 100. That would be clear for everyone, understanding that "Extrema Date" are when: 1. P= 100 E= any(including 100 or 100) I= 100 2. P= 100 E= 100 I= any(including 100 or 100) 3. P= 100 E= 100 I= any(including 100 or 100) Etc. Try to split your original sentence into two sentences according used conjunction and disjunction and you will probably notice that without additional therms (including or excluding pointer to example), meaning may be quite ambiguous. Quote:23 * 28 * 33 = 21252 days (roughly 58.2 years). In that period of time, there are precisely 320 different Maxima Days, 8 of which are *triple* Maxima Days (all three cycles are at 100 and/or 100). Yes, the minimum time between Maxima Days is 11 days. However, the maximum difference between consecutive Maxima Days is 196, not 380. With predicted maximum human lifespan of 125 years (45656 days) and with incorrectly assumed condition, values are exact. With reformulated precise definition, all is clear and figures now corrected accordingly. Assumption that non English readers may literally understand the content may help to formulate definition precisely. I'm not the only one here found original definition ambiguous.
