You should braille them as they are in print -- sounds like fractions. When a number follows the abbreviated function name after a space you would need a numeric indicator just as you would if it weren't in a fraction. The same thing happens in an enclosed list if a function name is part of the enclosed list.

As far as I know, there is no way to provide the meaning of the tactile point with braille dots. I would suggest keying a different kind of tactile point for each meaning. If anyone is aware of a braille way to do this, please let us know. Dorothy

I don't understand your statement regarding the number of points (not more than 5-6 points) on a graph. When the Guideline and Standards states that you should not use more than 5 point symbols on a page (Section 3.2.2), it is referring to 5 different [u]types[/u] of point (solid circle, hollow circle, square, etc.) rather than the [u]number[/u] of points.
For example, when you are finding a line of best fit, there are numerous points along the line.
Perhaps I have misread your question. Would you please post a scan of the print illustration in order to clarify your question for me, and state a source for your information on 5-6 points?

[quote=dworthing]Each letter would be capitalized individually (unless BH is an abbreviation). The word "for" is contracted -- it is not next to either a comparison sign or an operation sign.[/quote]

Thank you.

[quote=jocassidy]The problem- Solve A = BH/2 for H Do I use double caps for BH or capitalize each letter individually? Is "for" contracted or written out?[/quote]
