Hi, sorry I'm thick. I have tried to follow the workings of calculating the IDF for "pre" with a body of 998 documents and the table as you described it, and I simply can't follow the numbers. would you please be kind enough to show the workings, step by step on how to calculate the IDF for the first vector (pre), and also the score?
