Studying fr imu notes, I realize how freaking confusing some statements can be. Take this for hypothetical example: drug X blocks enzyme Y that inhibits the release of enzyme Z (which stimulates secretion of hormone A). Ok folks.. So the net effect of drug X on hormone A =?
Maths can help decipher this horrible statement.
Drug X blocks enzyme Y (-ve statement)
Enzyme Y inhibits enzyme Z (-ve statement)
Enzyme Z stimulates hormone A  (+Ve statement)

-Ve + -ve = +ve + +ve = +Ve.... Drug x stimulates hormone A! Yay!!

Nerdy moment. Sry
