Does there exist a Maple command that on its own calculates the residual standard error of two regression lists? 

I have Maple through the school where I teach math, and the IT-guy gave us Maple 2018.1 to install. 

But after a while even though I have Maple 2018.1 installed on my computer Windows 10 pc, then Maple 2018.1 surgests that I upgrade to 2018.1?? Any idea why? 



Hi guys and girls, 


The new Maple 2018 have a feature in the buttom called editable. If you remove that mark in the buttom of the screen, then maple doc can't be edited. I teach students who have english as a second language and some remove the mark in the editable box by mistake. Such that they can't do there hand-ins etc. 


So is there anyway to disable the editable box in the buttom of the screen? 


thanks in advance.


Dear Sirs, 

I am trying to construct for my students the situation in Maple how to calculate the maximum area of a right triangular garden, if the perimeter is 60 meters long, and the two known sides are x, y and the third side is z and is part of the garden which isn't covert by the perimenter fence. 

perimenter P = 60 -> x+y = 60 

Next using the Pythagoran theorem and solve. 

solve(x^2+z^2=y^2) and maple gives the solution z = sqrt(-x^2+y^2)

The area of the right triangle is T = 1/2*x*z 

where y can be found solve(x+y=60,y) - > y = 60-x

I insert this into the formula for my area formula. 

T(x) = 1/2*x*(sqrt(-x^2+(60-x)^2)

I solve(T'(x)=0) and get x = 20. 

However if I wanna show the that they can insert x = 20 into T(x), then the following happens. 
T(20) = 1/2*20*(sqrt(-x^2+(60-x)^2)

meaning Maple only inserts 20 the first x and not the second or third x. Any idea why this happens?  Does Maple think that the second and third x are functions? 

Best Regards


Hi I am trying to get Maple to find for which value k two parametric lines intersect using geom3d package. Is that possible?

my code is as follows. 

restart; with(geom3d);

#First I define the the point and vector to construct the line l.

point(P, 1, 0, -2);
v := [1, 1, 2];
line(l, {P, v});

Equation(l) = [1 + t, t, -2 + 2 t]

#Next I try to define the line m. 
line(m, [k*s+4, 2*s, 3*s], s)

but how (if possible to I get the line to take in the second paramter k? 

and if its possible? which syntax do I use in the intersection-command to get Maple to print out the value k? so it still uses the parameter s for the intersection? 

best regards
