calculation of glomerular filtration pressure??

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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. Relevant 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?? :)

Thanks
