What is wrong with this math? (answer I need is 6.00 ..)

#MATH {XYZ} {(11+21) / 2.00}
#MATH: VARIABLE {XYZ} HAS BEEN SET TO {5.50}.

Pretty new to Linux and using tintin #math, seeking help!

Figured it out!

#MATH {XYZ} {((11 + 2 - 1) / 2.00)}
#MATH: VARIABLE {XYZ} HAS BEEN SET TO {6.00}.

The subtraction character I had copied from Libreoffice writer was not being recognized by the Tintin #math function. My fix was to copy the subtraction character from the Tintin terminal and paste it into my Libreoffice document for future use.

LibreOffice Writer has an auto-correction dictionary under the tools menu, you can disable that particular character substitution in there

Thank you PowerGod! This will save me much time and confusion, thank you. After editing the AutoCorrect, I put your advice to the test - (by typing out the equation in Writer again and copying to Tintin) .. and it works! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
