If you need help with it I will post a G program in the computer thread.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Yes, I'd like that! I need the help because I'm only scratching around, not knowing where, what or how to scratch. I have to go to bed now, though. Catchya later...

Okay, when you get back there will be one in there. Have a good night.

G'mornin', Bobby. Off to work soon, but had time to correct my spreadsheet to incorporate the 'minimum' constraint I'd overlooked. Luckily it only took a few minutes as it needed just some simple tweaks.

I used conditional formatting to yellow-highlight equation-results cells that had values < -18, and also to identify those with value = -18.
