Hi All

I have the following line of code in Maple:

solve([sin(t), 0 < t, t < 6.28], t, allsolutions, explicit)

it produces: "{t = Pi}, {t = 2*Pi}, {t = 3*Pi}, {t = 4*Pi}, {t = 5*Pi}, {t = 6*Pi}, {t = 7*Pi}"

How do I get it to simply produce: "{Pi,2*Pi,2*Pi,3*Pi,4*Pi,5*Pi,6*Pi,7*Pi}

as having the variable listed is redundant and annoying when you want to go on and extract the 3rd solution (number only) form the list.

Thanks in advance.

Suppose I have a questions that says simplify some random square root

using the algorithm

$radicand=range(10,50,1);
$ques="sqrt($radicand)";
$ques_exact=maple("simplify($ques);");
$ques_ML=maple("f := $ques_exact: XMLTools[Print](MathML[Export](f));");

How do I create an answer field that ONLY allows the student to provide the simplified answer $ques_ML??  How might I provide partial points if they do not simplify (for a classic pythag triangle question for example)?

Thank you

Hi all,

I am attempting to construct a randomized questions using algorithms and the sketch question type.

I have defined my variables algorithmically.  The sketch question type only allows a static answer, and hence I am trying to modify the code.  

As you can see below the code (part.1.answer...) is looking for points located at (7,0) and (0,-7).  I would like to replace the 7 with variable $xint and -7 with variable $yint, but it seems the @-symbols are some form of termination point that won't allow variables to carry-into the expression.

Looking for ideas??  I do not want to change to multiple choice.

 

Thanks,
