There is none.

Why not divulge a little more of your top secret information and tell us why you are asking. Someone may have some usable input.

It helped me solve the integral I could not for ages. I now know, given it is x thousands miles from me to the moon, how many yards of pink flannel it will take to sew pajamas with feet in them for a hippo weighing say a ton or two and adjusting for atmospheric pressure if the hippo is female and living in NJ or at 6,000 feet in the mountains.

Should a 3 million dollar job have the same fixed fee percentage as a \$3,000 job? __________________ "Yeah, it's a nice garage, but you have to keep it heated at all times so it doesn't mess up your roof line."

I've felt the same way for a time now. It could be about jerking us around. Maybe, and I am a romantic, people are honest and ask such things to know whether they should attempt things on their own?
