How many bodies are you carrying?

If 2:

I think the 50 is, pardon me, the spare prick at the wedding here. You end
up with a 35 and a 50 or a 90 and a 50 or a 35 and a 90. The only sensible
combination here is the last one, so the 50 is surplus to requirements. If
you had a 28 and a 90 I might sing a different tune.
