1. Find a set of values of $$p$$, $$q$$, and $$r$$ such that $$\dfrac{p+q}{r}=1$$, where $$p$$, $$q$$, and $$r$$ are positive integers.
2. Find a different set of values of $$p$$ $$q$$, and $$r$$ such that $$\dfrac{p+q}{r}=1$$, where $$p$$, $$q$$, and $$r$$ are positive integers.
3. Find a set of values of $$p$$, $$q$$, and $$r$$ such that $$\dfrac{p+q}{r}=1$$ and $$p+q+r=25$$.
