"...now given a spectroscopic binary star, where the TiO bands of this M star comingle with strong Hydrogen lines from this A star, if we can determine the semi-major axis and the period, Kepler's law suggests that we should be able to derive the sum of their masses."

OK, since everyone else is going low-brow on this one...
