I have looked through all of the comments and I am not quite finding anything related to my question concerning reference numbers.

I have looked through several of my reference books and googled superscript reference numbers before words and I can't seem to find what I am searching for.

I am transcribing a lesson that it is using superscript numbers immediately preceding words at the beginning of sentences. The sentences are in a paragraph. The purpose of these numbers refer to what number the sentence is in the paragraph in order for the student to answer questions to follow.

I know how to do a superscript number before a word but I am unclear as to whether I need to include a space between the number and the word or place them right up next to each other as shown in print. In print there is no space between the raised number and the first word of the sentence.

However if I put the number right up next to the word it is changing the word as shown in my examples below.

Example a raised #2 preceding the word "It"is changing "It" to appear to be the letter "X"

Example a raised #3 preceding the word"Not" is changing the word "Not" to appear to be the letter "N"

Thank you so much for your assistance.

Lindy,

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I received your reply with all the information listed to help my understanding of this particular math equation.

I compared your example with what I thought was the correct way to transcribe this particular equation.  I am happy to say that I had everything correct with the exception of the factorial symbol.  Honestly that symbol is what threw me off. I was trying to use the exclamation-point symbol and I knew something was wrong. Your clarification of this was most helpful. I also took the time to look up each reference you sent to me.  I now have those in my notes for future reference on these type of equaitons.

Thank you so much for your expertise on helping me to decipher and understand this type of equation and how to transcribe it correctly.

FYI: the attachment you mentioned that I originally sent that was too large is a duplicate of the one you did receive. Chris Clemons assisted in helping to reduce the size of the attachment so we could attach it to the ASK AN EXPERT forum.

Once again, thank you so much for your help.

Debbie
