i actually don’t think i understand the instructions! doh i was never a math person!

1. Sorry, Jessie,

find m=
n=
as given in the formula,
then find m+1=
the last part is to computer what you get from m+1 and multiple this number three times, then you get the result…

* is not times in math here, it stands for an operation, thus you only follow the rule on the right hand side of the equation…

Thank you for stopping by, hope that you get it by now.
