hi, thx for rply min function compute minimal element from the set. How can I "translate" from "math language" to english, set property between brackets { } ? for example: (attachment) after i have colon sign, and i'm confused.. how can i read colon sign ? "such that" ? so in my whole sentence i have to times "such that" but with different sign ? once colon sign later vertical bar ? in other words: what element belongs to this set (between bracket { } ) ? reg Le1
