    exclusively

    Hi,

    I am very confused with the term "exclusively". I thought it means "nothing to do with", but sometimes it seems "something to do with"

    ex : A and B appear almost exclusively in the constant C

    Does that mean A and B can have values which are independent from C?

    It means neither of those things. (See dictionary.com)

    That means they almost always appear there and nowhere else.

    Possibly, but I don't do math questions.
