Question:
that of course implies that b<>0;
will most teachers deduct a point or more if that's
not specified as part of the answer?
Heaven alone knows what a random teacher will do.

But what they should do is to assume that if the problem starts with $b^{-1}$,

then it is ASSUMED that $b \ne 0.$

I am guessing that most teachers will take that route.

Seedy nightclubs aside...
I think my lecturer (hopefully) wouldn't mark us down for that. He bloody better not or the Irish / China war will kick off a lil early in the season.
And we all know who'd win that war...

Course not China. The heck do you mean? China lul...
We have hurly sticks - kind of like base ball bats with a big face palm at the end.
And I know he doesn't want hurl palmed.

Lol jking

Thanks for the heads up Jeff. I knew that part
It was the way the -1/3 jumped up combined with the 3 and delivered 10/3

I mean I knew the rules for that but I would never have put it together. Sexy stuff
