Okay gracias. That was a brain fart on my end. I now see that it is equivalent to 1/n1 + 1/n2.

One last question. If I use sampleN.tost and input
sampleN.TOST(CV=.3, theta0=1.0, theta1= 0.8, theta2=1.25, logscale=TRUE, alpha=0.05, targetpower=0.9, design="parallel")

I get sample size minimum be 78 total.

But then if I run CI.BE(pe=1.0, CV=.3, design="parallel", n=24)
I get CI = approx [0.81, 1.23].

This confuse me. Shouldn’t I need to enter n at least 78 in order to get CI within [.8, 1.25]?

Maybe I confuse concepts. In other words, what are implications if study *meet* bioequivalence but is underpowered?
