What's the problem? You seem to have the right equation on hand.

o yea sorry, the further question was;

what would I use for m to achieve the minimum index? 1?

As well, would I use the [+.5] or not, meaning destructive vs constructive.

Those 2 were my detailed questions.

anyone?

M would have to be the smallest possible integer without the right-hand-side being less than or equal to 0.
