How should I write the plural of a mathematical variable? E.g., in these sentences:

  1. The values of f(ui|uj) are independent for different [uj/ujs/uj's].
  2. The values of f(ui|uj) are independent for different [j/js/j's].

    From my experience, you usually do not need to make variables themselves plural; for example, you would say "... are independent for different values of u" etc. – BittersweetNostalgia May 30 '18 at 0:38

  • That already is what is there, people can already do that. --- Step 1: Read, Step 2: Understand, Step 3: Doubt, Step 4: Check the sources and references, Step: 5 Don't linger or revisit just move along. --- There's no additional requirements, simply do things normally. – Rob Jul 17 '18 at 11:51
