1. ## Ellipsis

"Let A be a parameter of the first algorithm and let B be a parameter of the second algorithm."

How to shorten it using ellipsis? For example,
1. "Let A be a parameter of the first algorithm; B, of the second algorithm."
2. "Let A be a parameter of the first algorithm, and B, of the second algorithm."

Which is better? Are both correct? Is any better way?

Thanks,

You could say 'Let A and B be parameters of the first and second algorithm respectively'...

Yes, I know, but this was just an example to look for patterns in use of ellipsis. So?

1. "Let A be a parameter of the first algorithm, B of the second algorithm."
2. "Let A be a parameter of the first algorithm and B of the second algorithm."
Which is better? Are both correct?-Yes, like this both are correct.
Is any better way? I thought you were asking for a better way.

Any better way to use ellipsis here.
