Hi Veeah.

In UEB with Nemeth, we define "x = the weight of the lightest policeman" as the math expression, all in Nemeth Code. The first place to divide an equation is before the equals sign. So, yes, you will have to divide this expression twice. Your second transcription shows this division preference.

It is recommended that the grouping signs be transcribed in the same code. So I would terminate Nemeth right after the word "policeman", then have the period and the closing parenthesis be in UEB. Even if more math follows right away, it will be clearer to read the closing parenthesis in UEB, rather than wondering if you missed an opening Nemeth grouping symbol. I demonstrate this in the attached file.

Thank you for your question!
