How can I change them into one constant? here is what I have so far: vecA - VecB ----------------- * 0.012 * ( 1.2 - ( p * 0.4 ) ) = Answer |vecA - VecB| Now I have been able to do the last part: 0.012*1.2 - 0.012(p*0.4) correct? 0.0144 - (0.012 * p * 0.4) correct? 0.0144 - (p * 0,004 correct? so now I have only two constants instead of 3. Can I even reduce this to 1 constant? how do i do that? But I have also a somewhat complexer formula: (vecA - vecB) * 0.8 * (1-|vecC|) -------------------------------------- = answer 1.2 - ( p * 0.4 ) With this function I can't even get it to two :s One is considered not a constant so If i could do: 0.8 * (vecA - vecB) * (1-|vecC|) --------------------------------------- = answer (1.2 * 1) - (p * 0.4) If I can get that 1.2 in this fashion: 1.2 * (rest, so 1, p, 0.4 with some formula) then I can do 0.8 (vecA - vecB) * (1-|vecC|) --- * ----------------------------------- -> 0.8/1.2 will be one constant again 1.2 rest(1,p,0.4) Okay so can anyone help me with the first formula and can anyone help me with the second formula?
