So if I evalf(3/4) maple should give me .75 as the answer? and not .75000000000
If you type 3/4. do you get the extra 0's?
Basically I'm not sure if I've changed, or one of the packages has changed, something in Maple or not. I would like to know if this occurs as a default. I'll have to try evelf(3/4) later this evening when I have a chance to see what happens.
But Isn't 3/4. exactly 0.75 anyway and so maple should no not have to add the zeros?
I did use Digits and I know it is defaulted at 10 places and if I use Digits :=20 it will give me 20 digits. If 3/4 was allowed to float shouldn't it just stop at 0.75 since it's an exact value?
So what I want to know is, have I changed something to alter the original settings in maple? or this is the normal way Maple works?
