You can define X in terms of M and P, you can define M in terms of X and P or you can define P in terms of X and M. What now? This also assumes that X and P exist as separate numbers. From Citrix question it is not clear (to me at least) whether he meant all of its factors < 1000, or all of the factors < 1000. If he meant the latter then P might be > M, in which case X might = P. Nice idea though.
