    what do i do with this?

    Hi Guys,

    i have this function, but my maths is less than bad

    the function is

    fitness of x = scale - ( 2 * (x - 1) (scale - 1) / noIndiviuals - 1 )

    my question is what do i do with the (x - 1) (scale - 1) part

    do i add them together or multiply them together?


    thanks.

    (x - 1) (scale - 1)
    This thing actually means multiplication ( I am assuming "scale" takes a numerical value)
