Is it too much to ask the author to write “coefficient”? Writing “normal numbers” just creates all kinds of trouble!
Thanks, RF. I’m not sure the use of “coefficients” would save that sentence. But this is the least of the issues. Write out a full pyramid and look at what it appears to be saying.
OK. Now I see…
So (a^3) x (a^4) x (a^5) = a^(3+4+4+5)? Well, bye-bye commutativity, it was nice knowing you.
