I have enclosed a page from a Chemistry text. The red arrow points to the target of this question. I have also enclosed a braille file with two methods for transcribing the statement. Which is the preferable method?
Choice 1 shows the statement in UEB with only the chemical formulas and the slash transcribed in Nemeth.
Choice 2 shows the statement with the divided segments fully enclosed in Nemeth. It seems to read as 3 moles of CO2 per or divided by 1 mole of C3H8.
I think that choice 1 is correct. However, I am confused after reviewing BANA's Guidance for Transcription Using Nemeth Code within UEB Contexts, Basic Guidance on When to Switch, Guideline #1: "Any mathematical expression or chemical formula is transcribed in Nemeth Code. This includes fragmentary expressions, (parts of formulas, incomplete equations, and the like) including isolated signs of operation or comparison. Slash meaning per, over, or divided by is mathematical and is part of a fraction. Fractions are transcribed in Nemeth Code.
Which method is best for the reader?
