## Finite Precision Arithmetic...

Maple 17

I am trying to illustrate the effects of using finite-precision arithmetic on solving certain linear systems using elementary row operations. I am able to set Digits to the desired level and use the RowOperation command for each individual row operation. I would like to be use say, ReducedRowEchelonForm or LinearSolve with the desired level of precision. Is there anyway to force Maple to use whatever number of digits when using commands like ReducedRowEchelonForm or LinearSolve?...

## Problem with Trigonometric Equation...

Maple 17

I am trying to use the procedure described in the answers to this question:

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/100137-Solving-Trigonometric-Equations-For

to find the solutions to sin(2*x) = 1/2 where -2*Pi <= x <= 2*Pi. After the isolve() command is issued, I get the warning that solutions may have been lost. i think the issue is the form in which Maple represents the general solution to the equation. Any ideas on how to rectify this would be greatly appreciated!

## Can Maple evaluate this limit...

Maple 16

I am attempting to apply some routine tests to determine the convergence of series with positive terms. I have run into a little difficulty with the root test. I am using surd( ) as shown below, but Maple will not give the exact value, which in my example, should be exp(6). Why is this happening and is there a way to get the root test to work?

Thanks!

## Embedding an animation/video in a pdf...

Maple 17

I am wondering if there is a way to create a pdf from a Maple worksheet that has an animation, or in the case of Maple 17, a video, that allows the viewer of the pdf to play the animation/video.

Thanks!

## Why can't Maple evaluate this triple int...

Maple 16

I'm trying to evaluate this triple integral in the rectangular coordinate system and Maple appears to be stuck after the second iterated integral. I then tried to evaluate the same integral in another computer algebra system and got the answer almost instantaneously. My guess is that system converted it to an integral in the cylindrical coordinate system. Why does Maple not do the same? Is there a way to force Maple to do so without manually doing the conversion? I hope there isn't a typo that I'm missing.
