    Re: meaning of symbol

    so if you were given

    1-(n-1 product symbol i=0) (1-((1/(2^(l*d))*(a)*(p)*(b-g)-i)

    values for symbols
    a=2^16
    b=2^16
    g=1024
    p=2

    how would you solve it? i've got an answer which i know is probably wrong of
    1-(n-1 product symbol i=0)(1-(1/8455716864*(2^(d*l))-i)

    can i drop out of equation?

    What are you trying to solve for?

    To solve for something you need an equality sign  x + y = 5 solve for x. 1 -  \prod_{i=0}^{n-1} \frac{1}{2^{ld}}2^{16}2^{16}(2^{16}2^{10})-i is not an equality.

    For example  \prod_{i=1}^5 i = 1 * 2 * 3 * 4  * 5
