Cindi, I am writing the following: -3 and 3. I go into Nemeth for the negative but should I end Nemeth after the negative number or stay in Nemeth with (6,3) so both numbers look the same? This is a 6th grade math book if it makes a difference.
According to the guidelines for using Nemeth in UEB, only the -3 must be in Nemeth. However, as the transcriber looking at the material, including the other 3 within the indicators (and using the switch on 'and') might be appropriate. It really depends on the context.
