Was my original conclusion wrong or are you just criticizing something that doesn't matter? If the maths are supposed to come out different then bring it out.

Anyways, this is turning into derailing.

Despite what you may believe, I'm not just giving you hard time for no reason. In fact, I didn't mean for our interaction to get so antagonistic in the first place. I really just want to understand why you chose to explain it the way you did. In this community, so many people have said stuff like "bonus A is applied AFTER bonus B" but no one has ever been able to explain to me why they say this. As you yourself acknowledge, it doesn't matter which way things are multiplied.

So when you were deciding how to explain the formula, why did it strike you as relevant to share this detail? Do you find that it helps to clarify the process? If so, how?

The formulas themselves are trivial. I have learned over the years that explaining them is not. So when I see someone using what I feel is a crazy strategy for explaining them, I want to find out more. It helps me to understand where new players are coming from.
