Thank you for the example. I appreciate what you are trying to do in your proposed transcription. Please let me suggest the alternative shown in the attached image. In that alternative, I have:
- indicated that the first Tens column is blank and *not* blank-to-be-filled-in, because zero tens and seventeen ones *does* equal the number 17.
- placed the numbers and the equals signs that make up the equation all on the same braille line.
- kept the column headings on a line separate from the equation whose parts they label.
- placed the opening Nemeth Code indicator as well as the Nemeth Code terminator on lines by themselves around the "table."
Please do let me know if you have follow-up questions or concerns.
