I was working through an old text book, trying to understand a different problem.  I came across this problem in an exercise set and thought it was simple.  Until I tried it.

The difficlty I had was in using subs to substitute all values.  I had to use subs 2 or 3 times to get all substitutions.  How can I avoid this?

## Prove if F is the fibonacci sequence,
with(combinat, fibonacci):
F := n -> fibonacci(n);  ## F(n+1) = F(n)+F(n-1); F(1) = 1;
## the problem
P := n-> F(n+1)*F(n+2) - F(n)*F(n+3);
check_low := proc(n)
    local idx;
    for idx to n do
    end do;
end proc;

## Assume true for n=k
A := P(k) = (-1)^k;

notation := { F(k)   = a,
              F(k+1) = b,
              F(k+2) = c,
              F(k+3) = d,
              F(k+4) = e };

## some fibonacci definitions
fibs := [ e = c + d,  d = b + c, c = a + b ];

eq1 := subs(notation,A);
eq1 := subs(fibs,eq1);
eq1 := subs(fibs,eq1);  ## have to repeat to get only a and b in the expression

eq2 := subs(notation,P(k+1));
eq2 := subs(fibs, eq2);
eq2 := subs(fibs, eq2);
eq2 := subs(fibs, eq2);  ## have to repeat to get only a and b in the expression
## Reduce eq2 to (-1)^(k+1)
simplify(eq2 = -lhs(eq1));
verify(eq2, -lhs(eq1), equal);
evalb(eq2); simplify(%);  ## Ah, this is why I need equal in verify.
evalb(-lhs(eq1)); simplify(%);

testeq(eq2, -lhs(eq1));


How Do I set the Command Line Font in Maple 2019?

The default font is strange.  eq is displayed as a a lower case char like '8' followed by 'q'.

I would like to have something like courier 10, etc.

I want to substitute the solution back into the original equation.  I get caught up in RootOf and have to manually do the substitutions.

F := [x^2+y+z-1, y^2+x+z-1, z^2+x+y-1];

soln1 := solve(F);

for s in soln1 do


end do;

The 4th soln has RootOf.

soln2 := solve(_Z^2 + 2*_Z - 1);

for s in soln2 do


end do;

How do I do this all in one step?

Fsolve produces the correct solution.  solve followed by evalf produces a completely different solution.

What am I doing wrong?

## Ioannes Colla problem: "Divide 10 into three parts such that they
## shall be in continued proportion and that the product of the first
## two shall be 6"
eqs := [a+b+c=10, a/b=b/c, a*b=6];
fsolve(eqs); ## correct solution
evalf(solve(eqs)); ## different

I tried the example in BodePlot help.

sys := TransferFunction( 1/(s-10) ):

That works OK. But, if I invoke Syrup, the example no longer works.

ckt := [V, Rsrc(50), C1(15e-9), L1(15e-6), C2(22e-9), L2(15e-6), C3(22e-9), L3(15e-6), C4(15e-9), 1, Rload(50)];

TF := subs(other, V=1, v[Rload]);
sys := TransferFunction(TF);

I get a message "not a valid plot structure".  OK, try the example, again.

sys := TransferFunction( 1/(s-10) ):
I also get the "not a valid plot structure" message.

What am I doing wrong?
