I think you have the best response to this.  I was trying to guess what was
intended from what was written.  I guessed that maybe the"input" is really
process error?  And then what are those "#" operators?  I guess these are
alphabetic characters, not operators?

One good way to answer the OPs question is a simulation.  Put some random
numbers in and plot the result.
