To me, that means 100 [decimal point] e ^ 0.2197t

That is NOT what I said.

I was using * to represent the multiplication symbol, since

looks like the algebraic x.

Am I mistaken in doing this? ie, is this where we differ?

I accept that there is no need to change it, however, I was trying to explain the meaning of

; though, it appears that I've made a mistake - is this not correct? (where X represents the multiplication symbol)

I know I'm still learning, but I've been using the

symbol in standard form calculations to represent x10^ without any problems, so I assume this is relevant? My sincerest apologies if it turns out otherwise?

I am relatively new to this forum so am unaware of the [ma th]...[/ma th] codes, but I have since edited my previous post to correctly display the powers
