## Can i get maple to show me the calculation steps, ...

Not to long ago i found a post showing that maple was able to show the steps behind math.

example:

twostep:=proc(expr::uneval)
(convert(expr,name) =
subsindets(expr,And(name,satisfies(t->type(eval(t),constant))),
z->convert(eval(z),name)))
= eval(expr):
end proc:

a:=1:
b:=3:
c:=5:

h:=twostep(a+b*c);

(a+b*c = 1 + 3*5) = 16

However if I assign a unit to any of these numbers (a,b or c), the twostep code won't work.

Is there any way that maple can show the steps, while having it both show and convert the units?

example:

a:=70V:

b:=40Ohm:   (I can't insert the Omega sign)

c:= twostep(a/b);

(a/b=70V/40Ohm) = 1,75A

## How can I display operators such as + and - and sq...

It is possible to display something like:

4 + 3 = x - 1

without Maple actually adding the 4 and 3 and putting that as a 7?

Same idea with sqrt. Is it possible to write sqrt(9) in a worksheet and actually seeing it as square root of 9 rather than a 3. Maple automatically simplifies everything so it's kinda hard to show a step by step process. Is there a way to solve this problem?

To be clear, I am talking about typing this into an active worsheet line. I know I can do a lot of this if I just do text becuase text lines obviously don't execute. They just display text. The reason I need to have this working is becuase sometimes I would have a command line where I want some of it to be excuted and some of it not so I can't just use text.

Thank you

## How do I view a step by step calculation? Example;...

Hi There,

Im currently on using a trial version of maple for engineering students. I am looking to see how you can view a step by step method of solving equations. I can't seem to find a way of doing so and I keep just getting the final answer. Can you assist?

Also I can't find the quadratic equation option.

thanks,

stuart

## I want to see step-by-step factor...

Hi,
In maple18 has:

with(Student[Basics][ExpandSteps])

but how to see step-by-step factor ??

(Sorry! I'm not very good at English.)

Thank you!

## output form on an eqaution...

lets say I have the folowng

a:=1

b:=3

c:=5

is it posible to have it like this

h:=a+b*c=1+3*5=16
