Jennifer, the reason you are getting a reply is that your post is confusing.

in the part < 1/c / a^2 > did you mean that to be triple-decker fraction?

Where is the primary division?

e.g. If I say 3/4/5 does it mean

3/4 ÷ 5 = (3/4)*(1/5) = 3/20 OR

3 ÷ (4/5) = 3*(5/4) = 15/4 , a different answer.

PLease clarify
