hi,

ok..i'm trying to work on this function which adds any missing plus signs in front of any terms that do not have one. The math equation is a string so basically if i have like 3w-y=5, i want to make it +3w-y=+5.

The way i'm looking at this is that maybe i need to place a string inside another string or maybe i can check if a term doesn't begin with one(don't know how to do this), i can insert the plus sign.

So confused

Thanks for any help and direction
