Hi,
I have a Nemeth book with many displayed items and having trouble locating what I need. I've indicated in parentheses the margins I've applied. My thought was to move 2 places to the right of the indented margin (cell 5), making the displayed 7/9, but can't seem to find examples to show that.
------------------
EXAMPLE 1.

4 What value of x makes the following statement true? (1/5)

7-x = -5 (7/9 ?)

F -12 (3/5)
G -2
H -2
J 12

---------------------
EXAMPLE 2.

54 James found the mean and median of his test scores in math. (1/5)

83, 87, 87, 92 (7/9 ?)

If he scores an 80 on his next test, then (5/5, as a continuation of text margin before displayed)

F his mean score will increase. (3/5)
G his ...
H his ....
J his ....
--------------------

Thank you,
Fred

Hi, Fred. You have correctly applied margins for material displayed in main division/subdivision format. This format is given in §191 "Margins for Non-Spatial Itemized Materials" subsection b (page 195 of the Nemeth Code) which says this: "When non-spatial itemized material contains both main divisions and subdivisions to whatever depth ... i. The main division numbers or letters must begin in cell 1 and the associated material must be run over, if necessary, in cell 5; ii. Subdivision numbers or letters, regardless of depth, must begin in cell 3 and must be run over, if necessary, in cell 5; ... iv. When the special margin requirements for linked expressions do not apply, a displayed expression must begin in cell 7 and must be run over, if necessary, in cell 9.

Note that --in the braille transcription-- there should be no blank lines.
