**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Hi anna_gg;

Your welcome. Just do not let him turn into one of those math types that start every proof with the words, "let g be a group" or "let G be a metric." 441 pages later they finish off with "which is what we set out to prove!"
