Every new scientist must learn early that it is never good taste to designate the sum of two quantities in the form:
Anyone who has made a study of advanced mathematics is aware that:
Therefore eq. (1) can be expressed more scientifically as:
This may be further simplified by use of the relations:
Equation (2) may therefore be rewritten as:
At this point it should be obvious that eq. (3) is much clearer and more easily understood than eq. (1). Other methods of a similar nature could be used to clarify eq. (1), but these are easily divined once the reader grasps the underlying principles.
