ab = c ----- 1
bc = a ----- 2
ca = b ----- 3

Sub 1 in 2
b(ab) = a
b^2 = 1 { assuming a is not equal to 0 }
b=+1,-1

Sub 2 in 3
c(bc) = b
c = +1,-1 { assuming a is not equal to 0 }
and also a = +1,-1.

ie a,b,c = +1,-1 & 0.

I have 5 real numbers whose product is non-zero. Now, I increase each of the 5 numbers by 1 and again multiply all of them.
Is it possible that this new product is the same as the non-zero number obtained earlier?
