Always use an asterisk character * for multiplication. To evaluate 2x&, you must enter 2*x*sqrt (4*x). ensure that you have entered your expressions with appropriate precedence. For example, 4*3+5 is different to 4* (3+5). When in doubt, use brackets. enter divisions correctly, using a / character. To evaluate -I-6 , you would enter (2*5+6) /(3*2). 3x2 Always put the multiplication sign in! Always use brackets for function arguments! Be careful with precedence rules in calculations! Ensure that your brackets match up, and are correctly located!

Evalf stands Introduction 17 for EVALuate with Floating point arithmetic. The first argument to the evalf () function must be the calculation you want to be evaluated. Optionally, a second argument tells Maple how many significant digits are required. 48912529 > > # Evaluate t h e square r o o t with 30 s i g n i f i c a n t d i g i t s . 4891252930760573197012229364 > sqrt(l32); > > > # Recall t h a t % g i v e s t h e r e s u l t of # t h e most r e c e n t l y e n t e r e d computation. 48912529 You can use the c o n v e r t 0 function to convert a FP number to an exact fraction.

3*4+; Error, ’;’ unexpected. Note that in this case, the Maple input cursor will be positioned in the command you entered, at the place where Maple thinks the error occurred. In the next two examples we failed to type * to indicate multiplication. The results are surprising. Introduction > 11 (3+2)4; Error, unexpected number > 4(3+2); 4 In the first instance Maple gave the correct error message. However, in the second example Maple gave a wrong answer and did not issue an error message. The moral of this is simple, always try to enter your command precisely and carefully.
