[quote:DrDre:MV81MDgxNV8yNTIwODc0X0ZCMUQ5OEFF] I hate to say this but math basics are the root cause of this problem. In high school I was taught to do interpolation with paper and pencil. Do the Math means understanding the basic principles by practice and mental sweat.Using computers and calculators to get the answer by pressing a sequence of buttons and imputing the neccessary data is not knowledge. Its data entry. [/quote]
