Do you have a preference for reading abbreviations. Do you prefer them fully pronounced or can the abbreviation be read as letters.

Eg: the abbreviation Q.E.D means quod erat demonstrandum

I can read out "Q.E.D" or I can read out "quod erat demonstrandum"

I have no preference, although I think it probably varies by situation.

I don't know if anyone can help with this :

"As c is to r; so is psc⁄rr = GB by the 6 Prop. to ps⁄r GF"

Based on the sentence structure and previous formulas, my instinct is that ps/r = GF, otherwise it reads as "ps over r times GF"

I'm pretty sure it's ps/r times GF. I've got that in my section, too. :)

As c is proportional to r, so psc⁄rr (which = GB) is proportional (by the 6 Prop.) to ps⁄r times GF

I confess I did not edit while checking the text, so I might have edited to where it SOUNDS good but leaving something out. :oops:

To be honest, I have seldom read anything where I did not have a clue what was going on... :shock: (And that includes cold readings of dramatic roles)
At least, I have now learned what a syzygy is - should I ever need that again.
I'd have never guessed that you had no clue. I certainly had no clue what you were reading, but you read it well!

PL OK!
