    `twice g` means `2 times g`

    so instead of g^2 you should have 2g

    g^2 means "g squared" g^2 = g*g

    would you use a fraction for one forth...or literally use 1/4?

    1/4 is a fraction, so yes

    yes so " the sum of r and ten" means r+10, agreed?

    Yes

    so 1/4 (x or +) r+10

  35. jim_thompson5910

    so 1/4 of that is simply \[\Large \frac{1}{4}(r+10)\]

    the 1/4 is being multiplied by ALL of "r+10" and not just the r
