calculation of glomerular filtration pressure??

1. Homework Statement

Which of the equations below describes the calculation of glomerular filtration pressure (BC = Bowman's capsule and GC = glomerular capillary; $ = the Greek character "pi")?

1: (PGC + $BC) - (PBC + $GC)
2: (PBC + $BC) - (PGC + $GC)
3: (PGC + $GC) - (PBC + $BC)
4: (PGC + PBC) - ($GC + $BC)
5: (PBC + $GC) - (PGC + $BC)


2. Homework Equations

3. The Attempt at a Solution

My lecture notes did not mentioned anything about this... I think it is one of the questions that is out of my syllabus... Would like to know the answer anyway.. Can anybody help?? :)
