What a great example! This is a complex fraction showing cancellation without replacement values. The BANA Nemeth committee is suggesting a new way to transcribe cancellation when no replacement values are shown, allowing linear transcription. Although the new Nemeth code book is not yet published, the lesson manual is teaching this method. I suggest you use it here. In the attached brf file, I have shown both ways. The new way combines a spatial rendition of the complex fraction, but the simple fractions within it are transcribed linearly, with appropriate cancellation indicators in place. The old way is entirely spatial. I think the new way is easier to read. See what you think. (brf file attached)
