I am having trouble trying to perform some of the computations listed in the Maple Advanced Engineering Mathematics E-book. I directly copy and paste the text into my worksheet but Maple does not compute the answer as shown in the e-book. It simply rewrites what I copied in a different format. For example I'll write:
simplify(CrossProduct('A' , 'E') ) ;
Instead of computing the answer it just rewrites my input in a differnent way like this:
It never shows the result of the cross product. The vectors I am trying to calculate the cross product have 3 components and I only show the first component for each vector above for clarity. I am new to Maple and don't know what I am doing wrong. Thanks for your help.
