Formula for block reward when the block contains uncles?

Trying to find a simplified formula that explains exactly how the block reward is calculated for a block containing either one or two uncles.

Ethereum mining wiki lacks details. Best I could find was on github:

(U_n + 8 - B_n) * R / 8

R = 5 (ether)

But can someone explain what do U_n and B_n represent?

Why? Got a block reward from ethpool that was only ~3 eth :( I'm assuming because it contained 2 uncles.
