I think you forgot to load the package before using Pade. This can be loaded with <<Calculus`Pade` or Needs["Calculus`Pade`"] Pade[Cos[x], {x, 0, 2, 4}] At least, that is what I think it is because I don't have access to Version 5 anymore. But the Version 5 Help should tell you how to load the package. In Version 6 Pade has been moved to the kernel and its name and usage have changed. If you use Pade before loading the package, you should Quit the kernel and start over, this time loading the package first. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark From: Akshay [mailto:a.akshay87 at gmail.com] i am new to mathematica and am using mathematica 5.0. i need to use a function Pade for a project. in mathematica help browser, i found a few relevant illustrat ions. but when i give the same command as in any of the illustrations, the output comes out to be the same command, instead of the output shown in the illustration. the illustration is In[1]=Pade[Cos[x], {x, 0, 2, 4}] Out[1]=(1-61*(x^2)/150)/(1+(7*(x^2)/75)+((x^4)/200)) here's what i get In[1]=Pade[Cos[x], {x, 0, 2, 4}] Out[1]=Pade[Cos[x], {x, 0, 2, 4}] somebody please tell me how i can get the result.
