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 $\displaystyle x + y = 5 $ solve for x. $\displaystyle 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 $\displaystyle \prod_{i=1}^5 i = 1 * 2 * 3 * 4 * 5 $
