### I no longer mix and match tapes by the episoide!
This page is from the old days on my site back when I did offer that.
Do not ask me to mix and match episodes, the reasons are addressed on
my How to Order page. ^_-

Although this page is no longer directly relavent to my fansub distribution
I have restored a linked back to this page because I feel people would
find it both amusing and educational. ^_^

# Math with Glen-sensei

#### (Just think of me as Na-chan while you are reading
this page. ^_^)

This page is here to clear up a common mathamatical error that people
make when trying to figure out what will fit on a tape.
Below is a sample order I got from
someone who made the math mistake.
Here is what I would like please: 15 eps. mode EP is it?

Simple= 150-166 SuperS eps. in Japanese minus episode 158

## What they thought:

They thought 166-150=16 minus the one they left out would make 15

## Where they went wrong

As I'll demonstrate below they actually have asked for 16 eps.

#150 is the 1st ep.
#151 is the 2nd ep.
#152 is the 3rd ep.
#153 is the 4th ep.
#154 is the 5th ep.
#155 is the 6th ep.
#156 is the 7th ep.
#157 is the 8th ep.
#159 is the 9th ep. (Remember they said to leave out #158)
#160 is the 10th ep.
#161 is the 11th ep.
#162 is the 12th ep.
#163 is the 13th ep.
#164 is the 14th ep.
#165 is the 15th ep.
#166 obviously won't fit! ^_^

## How to clean up your mathamatical act. ^_^

The correct formula to use for calculating a run of episodes is:

(Last in the run - First in the run) + 1

So: 166-150+1=17
Then subtract the 1 for the episode they wanted left out (#158) and you
get 16 like when I counted them one at a time above. Hopefully this
clears up the misconception on how to calculate. Try it with any run of
episodes then count them out and you'll see it matches.

## Think of it this way!

Would eps 1 & 2 be one episode (after all 2-1=1! ^_-) or two episodes?
It just isn't as obvious with larger numbers thus the tendancy of people
to make this mistake. No biggy but now you all know so...

## You now have No Excuses for this one! ^_-

Any order like this which I get in
future will have an episode left out and I will pick which one, it will
most likely be the last one that I leave
out. I won't be E-mailing people who make this mistake as I have
limited free time due to my current job. Sorry I have to impliment
this policy but I've got to reduce the things that require my personal
attention.

## Why the Na-chan pics to represent me?

#### Because I've always wanted to be a teacher just like Na-chan...

####
...one that get's to date one of his cute students that is. ^_-

### As Shingo said, It's hard being popular. ^_^
