Hi I am sorry if this is a trivial question but I am trying to follow a book to create a mathematical model but I can not get the same result. The equation has curly brackets and I am not sure what it means. If I just treat them as normal parentheses in excel then I get the wrong result. This is driving me crazy any help you can offer would be of great help.
The values for each parameter are as follows:
F2 = 0.846 F3 = 2.006 F5 = 0.814 F6 = 0.449
If I enter those into the the corresponding cells in excel (F2-F6) the equation I am entering looks like this:
Using this formula I get the answer 5.54 but the book says the answer should be 0.148???? Typically no steps are shown as to how they reached this figure.
I am puzzled as to whether it is something I am doing wrong or whether the book is wrong? I am wondering if am treating the curly brackets wrong or the exp function.
Any help would be much appreciated.
