Default algerbraic expressions to write points

I don't know where this should go seeing as it may or may not involve point costs. Well, is it possible to use algebraic expressions to announce point costs instead of posting the cost itself? This idea came to me when we were recently reviewing algebra.

Please do not smite and or ridicule. I was only thinking it be easier to communicate with the restriction of points.

E.g. 4 space Marines with 6 servo skulls = 6x =30Pt's

It's a pointless idea; basically it's taking a "lalala, I can't here you" approach to copywrite infringment; points costs shouldn't be listed in any form.

Yeah, we're not entirely keen on this... the only thing worse than breaking copywrite is doing it in a manner befitting a smarmy git.

So anyway, lockiness.
