    I have a worksheet with fractions where the numerator and denominator are both printed at the same level of writing on either side of the diagonal line. So I am using the numeric indicator and the slash to indicate the fractions. However, I have an equation with two simple fractions both printed this way.

    Should I use fraction indicators since this is an equation or just braille it as it is in print? See example below.

    4/6-1/3 (all printed at the same level)

    When numerator and denominator are printed at the same level of writing, you are correct not to use opening and closing fraction indicators. You do need to transcribe this using Nemeth symbols, inside the switches. There will be only one numeric indicator, before the 4 in your example.

    _% #4_/6-1_/3 _:

    I am happy to be able to refer you to the newly published 2022 edition of the Nemeth code, Rule 13.3.2.
