```OK so you are implicityly assuming that R1=R2 =R3
this is not evident at this point of your explanation

Paul,

If you add the three equations to get the equation for
the system as a whole then you will get something
like:
[a(1+R1)+b(1+R2)+c(1+R3)]p1 + ... = X+Y+Z
The equation for the system as a whole could also be
written as:
(a+b+c)(1+R)p1 + ... = X+Y+Z
The condition of eqs. v-vii is simply saying that:
[a(1+R1)+b(1+R2)+c(1+R3)]p1 = (a+b+c)(1+R)p1 and
similarly for second column and the third column.
Remember, this condition will satisfy the equation
whatever the value of R happens to be. However, R1 =
R2 = R3 = ... will be true only if R = the standard
rate of profit. Cheers, ajit sinha
