|(%i2)||eq: x^3 - 8*x^2 + x + 9 = 0;|
Attempting to verify, that the absolute of the cube root,
is actually the square root of (61/9)...
|(%i5)||expr : ((sqrt(5003)*%i)/6+709/54);|
Because this time, the base was real, its cube root
was also treated as real.
Therefore, two terms are being added, that have the same absolute.
Is Maxima able to give me the numbers from both forms?
If Maxima is unable to compute the numeric
version of one solution set, how is the
average user expected to do so? And yet, how
is a set of exact, non-numeric roots to become
useful, if their approximate, numeric values
cannot be verified?
|(%i10)||s : map(rhs,%o8);|
ProductSeries(list) := block (
product : 1,
for elem in list do (
product : product * -elem
The constant term was (+9)...
The following Maxima function does, what my own suggested
program also does: Compute numeric approximations only:
|(%i14)||s : map(rhs,%o13)$|
