Creating larger chain

Hello, When we begin creating our larger chain after we have gone through all the rules and made our initial deductions, is there a general rule of thumb, or something to look for when beginning the larger chain? It seems that the whole question rests on this chain. And it’s crucial to get it right.

Hi Devin,

The general idea that you want to keep in mind when creating these large sequencing chains is to spot any variable that is mentioned in more than one rule, and then use this variable as a linking point to combine the rules.

For example:

N and J before G

G before I

We can combine this using G as the linking point. It becomes N and J before G before I.

This is the idea we want to be looking out for when creating these larger chains.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
