Calculating Beakers
by rijmatsleepers

I suspect I'm going to feel a bit foolish as soon as someone posts a reply to this, but here goes. My SSC has 116 trade arrows. At 100% research that converts to 116 beakers.
Library + university + research lab takes me to 290 beakers.
Copes + Newton's takes me to 870 beakers.

But the game is reporting 928 beakers.
Where have I gone wrong in the calculation? Is there something else that adds beakers? (For the sake of this calculation I have changed the einsteins into elvii.)

Sir Isaac's doubles beakers for each scientific improvement, so ...
Library, University and Research Lab each contribute 58 beakers before INU, but each yield 116 after the wonder is added:

Total = (116(base) + 116(library+INU) + 116(university+INU) + 116(lab+INU)) X 2(Cope's) = 928

Thanks - it was Cope's that I was miscalculating. The civilopedia says that it increases science by 50% rather than doubling!
