    It is highly unlikely that you'll ever want or need to do it manually.

    Ok good because I understand how they figure it out but it looks really annoying to do yourself.

    It is important to understand the nuances as stated incase you ever run into an issues. Also you would want to know if you wrote your own programming language ;)

    O ok thank you I understand how it works and how to figure out the answer if necessary. Its just not something I want to repeatedly do.
