## displaying numbers in equations

(OP)

Is there a way for MathCAD to display numbers used in the equation?

I got my variables, my equation, but visually I want to check if the numbers I used are correct.

Thanks IR

Are you simply trying to audit your work to verify things are working properly before you automate?

Or are you interested in seeing the equation inputs/outputs each time this is executed (like some of the online Java calculators)?

Example: a=1 b=2 c=a+b=1+2=3 what I want to show.

Using explicit function, the following is shown:

c=a+b=1+2=1+2 I can see no result! But tutorial shows an example where Mathcad 14 writes the result correctly. Why is 1+2 shown twice instead of the result? I do not understand it.

## RE: displaying numbers in equations

For your example if you use

a:=1

b:=2

c:=a+b explicit,a,b->1+2->3

(Where -> is the symbolic evaluation on the symbolic toolbar)

By hiding the keywords and displayed evaluation as equal sign you can quite easily get what you're after

c:=a+b=1+2=3

This is using version 13.

bmagdalena,

I started a post a few months back which addressed a similar issue, it didn't come up with a solution though, more of a work-around. It might be worth a look though:

All the best

so if I have:

a=1

b=1

a:=b+c

a=2

then next eqation

e=1

d:=a+e

then under

explicit Im getting a+1, or 1+1+1.

since I already know value for a, is there a way to skipp brakedown of a value and just get for d 2+1

maybe you already fund this out, but to get results after explicit operation you need to go to the end of the result equation and add equal sign to get the result.

Since globals are processed before anything else, their definitions are valid anywhere in the sheet, no matter where the actual definition is. Obviously, it makes it hard to read the sheet for an outsider, but sometimes, it's worth it.
