Its hard to be sure what you are tying to do here because the formattng
is messed up. Please post in plain text. For example it could be:

for a in range(1,10):
for b in range(1,5):
for c in range(1,5):
mc=(6*a)+(9*b)+(20*c)
if mc==50:
print a,b,c
else:
print a,b,c
a=+1
b=b+1
c=c+1

But its not clear why you are adding 1 to a,b and c?

And I'm not sure why the inner loops are both up to 4.
I don't really understand what you are trying to do or
how you think this code will do it, so I can't offer
you more help.

Sorry.
