Try the following command

VolumeOfRevolution(sqrt(x), x, x = 0 .. 1, axis = vertical, distancefromaxis = 0, output = plot, volumeoptions = [transparency = .5], volume2options = [transparency = .6]);

This command uses volumeoptions and volume2options to control each of the two plots seperately so that that outside plot is slightly more translucent than the inner sqrt(x) plot.

## Possible solution...

This page has a link at the bottom to a zip file with the images of the numbers.  You could use theRead and  Preview commands from the ImageTools package to then view to correct image.

EDIT: I guess I should have checked this before writing this, the images from that page have .gif images of the numbers but ImageTools want one of the following formats BMP, JPEG, or TIFF.  Therefore the images of the mayan numbers would need to be converted to one of these formats

## Classical worksheet problem...

This appears to be a problem with the Classic worksheet.  In the Standard (Java) worksheet in Worksheet mode or Document Mode this will work fine.  If you decide to use the 2-D input in the standard worksheet, the only change to the code you need to make is change the : at the end of the local statement to a ;.  If you use Maple (1-D) Input, you don't need any changes to the code.

## Just change the extension...

A nice simple way to read this worksheet is to change the .txt extension into a .mw extension.  Could you indicate the error that you found when you tried to read the worksheet and what version of Maple you were using?

## Re: plaintext...

The post was plaintext but that has been changed to the "filtered html" that you though was the input.

## Mac installer...

As Danial Howard has pointed out, the problem is that you are using an incorrect installer for your operating system.  If you had purchased a shipped copy of Maple from Maplesoft, you should have a CD with a Mac installer on it (I beleive it may be on the same CD as the windows installer).  If you had purchased a download copy of Maple from Maplesoft's website, you should contact Customer Support to see about getting a new link for you.

## Re: Who's online...

The block for "Who's Online" should be on the left side below the poll.  If it doesn't show up for you and you would like to have it, go to the "My Account" section, click on edit.  Under the "Block Configuration" section you can place a checkmark beside "Who's Online" and click submit at the bottom of the page.

## Roots...

I don't know why Roots doesn't give you the solution but you are able to get the solutions if you add the numeric option for Roots. For example Student:-Calculus1:-Roots(sin(3*alpha)-.34, alpha = 0 .. 12); Scott

## Not officially supported...

Maple 10 isn't officially supported, so I would suggest upgrading to Maple 11 which does have a Vista support. If that isn't possible at the moment and you would just like to run some code you could try the suggestion that another user indicated here. I haven't tried this, so I don't know if it works (also, it is possible if it does install there may be other issues). I would still say that getting Maple 11 that has been tested on Vista would be the best. Scott

## possibly what Acer meant.......

It is possible that Acer had meant that even this trick of &`lt;` doesn't add the < to the subject line of the recent comments currently. But this should be fixed when updated. I can't speak for what circumstances Acer wanted the < in the subject line but some cases may come up at some point. Scott

## Re:Modes...

When you first install Maple, you are given a choice between Worksheet or Document Mode. The default can be switched by going to Tools>Option and under the Interface Tab the selection is beside "Default format for new worksheets". If you just want to change modes for the next worksheet/document but you don't want to change your default, you can do this by going to File>New and select the mode for the new worksheet. To tell what mode you are when you open up Maple, just look at the left most part where the cursor is. If it looks like this then you are in Document Mode. If it looks like this you are in worksheet mode. The main difference you should notice is that the worksheet mode has [> at the left most part. Scott
