    He as well as I are going. vs. He, as well as I, is going.

    He as well as I are going.

    He, as well as I, is going.

    Without commas the verb should be are. With commas, the verb should be "is'. Am I correct?

    Thanks.

    Avoid the somewhat artificial problem by saying Both he and I are going.

    Or "Both of us are going".
