X(X+1)/2X = (X^2+X)/2X = (X+1)/2 In the second formula you have changed the X and Y. It should look like: (Y(Y + 1) / 2Y)X + N Here you can eliminate one Y. ((Y^2 + Y) / 2Y)X + N = ((Y + 1) / 2)X + N So the formula for calculating: 1dX is (X+1)/2 and XdY+N is X((Y + 1) / 2) + N /Johan +------------------------------------------------------------+ | Ensure that you have read the CircleMUD Mailing List FAQ: | | http://democracy.queensu.ca/~fletcher/Circle/list-faq.html | +------------------------------------------------------------+
