Student or Learner
Please set me clear on the following in red.
After I left the office, I realized I forgot the power cord for my notebook, so I went back upstairs. Then I ran into the project team for the Smith account and they said they were having trouble making the numbers work, so I went into the conference room to help.
What does "Smith account" refer to? A customer called Smith? Or does it mean some kind of bank account?
And does the second one mean just "calculating"?
Yes, the customer's name is Smith.
It depends on context. They may not have been able to work within the budget to do what was needed.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
