 Japanese term or phrase: よりa・bを求める Again, from a moisture meter manual. This phrase contains a formula that I am trying to express adequately in English. The whole phrase is like this: 本器での測定値を測定値（X）、計画配合等の数値を基準値（Y）として、補正式 Y=a+b・Xより　a・bを求めます。 Thanks in advance.

 English translation:to obtian a and b Explanation:Hi David, I believe that this is not trying to obtain a times b unless the manual uses the value of "a times b" later in the document. It applies X and Y to the equation to obtain slope b and intercept a. --------------------------------------------------Note added at 46 mins (2010-12-14 00:18:28 GMT)--------------------------------------------------obtian... obtain!

Explanation:
Here, a and b are usually in italic font styles since they are variables. See: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/programming-9/how-to...
