I want to include the result of an evaluation in a document block that is included in a workbook. It is easy to write sin(Pi) and obtatin sin(Pi)=0 in your document block. Howwever in the case below I want to preserve only y=x/3  removing the isolate(...) expression. Does anyone know if this can be done and if so how to do it?

x = 3*y

x = 3*y



Here  is an inline evaluation of a previous formula isolate(x = 3*y, y) = y = (1/3)*xwhere we have an uneeded '=' sign which can be edited out easily. But is it possible to hide the formula that is evaluated leaving only the output inline and to do this only for the current document block?

Thanks for any help.


I have many expressions in a worksheet like this:

latex(%, "equations.tex", append = true)

I should have defined a file name like this:

fname := "C:/home/MyStuff/Economics/MICRO NOTES/equations.tex"

And then replaced the first expression throughit the worksheet by:

latex(%, fname, append = true)

To acheive this I open the Find/Replace dialogue as in picture below:

This does not work. Instead of replacing with fname the result is "fname" .  Is there any way of doing what I want?

I want ot add an annotation to a plot using the drawing facility. Then I export the plot. My problem is that I cannot increase the viewport of the plot without also increasing the size of the plot. For example the code:

plot(20-(20*(1/10))*P, P = 0 .. 10, labels = ["Q", "P"], scaling = constrained, tickmarks = [5, 3], size = [600, 400])


produces this plot:

I have constrained the plot and used the size option which together have the side effect of giving me more horizontal space. But this is a wretched hack! I want to size the viewport of the plot so I can write on it.


I have a workbook that derives the Cobb-Douglas factor demand functions:

The final formulas (10) and (11) are not in the same format as the formulas in my textbook (by Hal Varian). In fact my last formulas betray no obvious symmetry while Varian's forms do.


Here is a picture of them scraped from the text.


Is it possible to instruct Maple to obtain these forms?

Maple 17 is very exciting so I am hopeful ....



Maple evaluates:

but when I ask:

Maple will verify sin(u)/cos(u)=tan(u) but beyond that it does not seem to work too well. I suspect this has something to do with verify being a "semi-boolean" function but searching the docs for what that mean returns no results. It may mean "I am unable to decidee". But how should I know? :-(

This is Maple 2016.1 on Windows. There is a post on verifying very simple identities.

Edit As usual some very helpful answers for which many thanks. It is poor that Maple does not document the meaning of FAIL.It seems that for trig identities the expandverfier is the best.

Edit Maple documents FAIL under ? FAIL. I am not sure how I got a blank page when I searched.
