Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

It's hard to comment without knowing exactly what the question was. If I was setting that question in an exam I'd expect the answer to be $2F$.
