English term or phrase: half of five profiles
Good morning, hat das in der Mathematik eine bestimmte Bedeutung? Wörtlich übersetzt macht es ja keinen Sinn. Hier der Satz:
Reference numbers 608 to 612 indicate ***half of five*** profiles defined over different transversal vehicle sections corresponding to different values along the longitudinal vehicle coordinate yvb, indicated by the intersections, marked by a thick dot, of the profiles vertical axis with the Z-VB axis.

Danke für jede Hilfe!
