*Q: From an amazon.com review: In the instructions it states that when the remainder equals 0, the yearly pillar = (birth year / 60) -3, and on the next page, “simply subtract 3 from the quotient (birth year divided by 60) … But in sample exercise 2 the author goes with the formula YP = R -3 and uses the remainder of 0 instead of using the quotient, which was 33…*

A: Hello!

So sorry for your very understandable confusion and thank you for pointing out this error in editing!

**When R = 0, BaZi YP = 60 – 3 (in other words, when there is no remainder, the Yearly Pillar will always be 57).**

Along the same lines, this error is repeated in the box which summarizes the exception, immediately.

**“…subtract 3 from 60…”**

**When the birth year is divisible by 60, the remainder, R, is 0, and BaZi YP = 60 – 3 (aka 57).**

This editing error will be corrected in the e-book version as soon as possible, and in the print version once the second edition is available.

Thank you for your patience – I hope this helps!
