Thank you for checking in 🙂
If you're transcribing in Nemeth Code (with EBAE), no UEB:
- "Subtract ab from both sides." An English Letter Indicator should precede the short-form letter combination ab
- "How can you isolate w?" An English Letter Indicator should precede the single letter w (and a punctuation indicator should precede the question mark that follows this variable).
- "You can rewrite the right side as two terms, c = x−a−ab−a,…. etc." An English Letter Indicator should not precede the c because it is immediately followed by a symbol of comparison.
- "Consider the equation m−n = 4p" An English Letter Indicator should not precede the m because it is part of the unspaced mathematical expression m−n
Sections 25 and 26 of the Nemeth Code are super relevant to your questions. They can be a little "wordy," but they cover some important Nemeth/EBAE overlap.
Again, thank you for checking in. And thank you for your questions.
