Confusion over numbering order of requirements
Please be aware there is a misnumbering in the printed copy of the 2010 Boy Scout Requirements Book for the Electronics Merit Badge. The numeral for #5 "Show how..." is missing making it appear to be part of 4(c). Also resulting in #6 incorrectly numbered as number 5 and similarly #7 incorrectly numbered as number 6. —Preceding unsigned comment added by RobertMorris (talk • contribs) June 16, 2010.

- Thanks for that note! This is important enough to post a note on the article page itself. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 23:35, June 16, 2010 (EDT)
- Follow-up note! I'm attempting to officially verify this, by the way. Not that I doubt you. All my sources (Scouting.Org, USScouts.Org, and the worksheets have "Show how..." (under #4c) as a separate line, but still, an overall part of req. 4. Then #5 and #6, but no #7. When considering the context of the requirements, the part in question could go either way... numbered (separately) as #5, or part of #4, overall. Notably, this "part" alone looks "funky" on Scouting.Org. I will post an update here when I get the verifiaction, one way, or the other. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 00:08, June 17, 2010 (EDT)
- But, officially, "Show how to read the schematic diagram of the project you choose and, to the best of your ability, explain to your counselor how the circuit you built operates." is part of requirement #4.
