Well, there you are: fenix is correct too! Four answers and all correct!
On the "blend formulas?" Not ONE expert "blender" EVER uses the formulas. I don't use them, and stopped "doing the math" ages ago. WHY?
Think about this. When you learn a foreign language, you have to learn the grammar. Once you understand it, you never think about the grammar again, because you "just know it." It sounds right.
Can you imagine thinking about, say, past/present participles before you speak? You probably don't even know what the parts of speech are!
Do you know what a gerund is? (Well, here it is: A gerund is the “-ing” form of a verb when it functions grammatically as a noun in a sentence. Gerunds are identical in appearance to present participles, but they are not used to form tenses of the verb or provide adjectival information.) Do you EVER think about this?
Most native speakers don't know their own rules of grammar. And, this is exactly how the "blend formulas" should be used. Horribly, the computerization of some machines took this "blend-grammar issue" literally and made it "absolute" ... BIG BIG mistake.
One day, when I get off my big butt, I'll do a video on this ...
