(and even if I can type, you are right, fractional formulas are not that easy too type too) Anyway I would first do the numerator, then ANS / (denominator) . In algebraic. In RPN would be quite similar. 7 12 + 5 23 + * 3 18 + 4 12 + * / My point is though, aside from some edge cases, it is easier to follow the written form. In RPN I have to rework it in my mind. First I extrapolate what I need first, then I proceed with the rest. This is surely a pedagogical advantage, but after a while it is just overhead for my point of view. Why is it overhead? Because I do not write the formula in RPN. I am not geared towards it when I manipulate the formula on paper. You yourself wrote in algebric form to communicate with me and the rest of the forum, not in RPN directly. Wikis are great, Contribute :)
