    54.03759*((1/0.8^2-2+((1/0.8^2-2)^2+4)^0.5)/2)^0.5 = ???
    First step:
    54.03759*((1/0.64-2+((1/0.64-2)^2+4)^0.5)/2)^0.5=
    Next:
    54.03759*((-0.9984+((-0.9984)^2+4)^0.5)/2)^0.5=
    Next:
    54.03759*((-0.9984+4.9968^.5)/2)^0.5=
    Next:
    54.03759*((-0.9984+2.2354)/2)^0.5=
    Next:
    54.03759*(0.6185)^0.5=
    Finally:
    =42.4969

    I hope that is correct or I may have to turn my engineering degree back in.
