Re: Not getting numeric answer to simple division


Paul,

Is this what you mean?

3/2
N[%]
3/2
1.5

If you want decimal answers, just use N on your expression.

Does anyone know how to get a numeric answer to a simple division problem?

Even if I have a very complex problem, the moment I place the division
symbol '/' into the equation, my answer always comes out as   a/b in
some form.

Paul
