Okay.
Do they use different codes for main edition and student edition?

Yes, it is. A print error!

Corrected it.

Hi gAr;

Since they are addon packages I would say yes.

Hi bobbym,

Okay.
Are you going to report that problem?

I have reported many problems to both Mathematica and Maple. I was a beta tester for Mupad. These experiences left me with bad feeling for reporting errors. They do not listen.

There is a guy I knew. Pretty good mathematician. He finds hundreds of errors in all packages. He is generally not taken seriously.

I like the packages, I do not like the corporations that produce them. I like mathematics but do not like mathematicians. I like science but find scientists reprehensible.

### Re: Limits!

Did not mean to sound so negative. Perhaps it is not as bad as I see it. Just seems that everything has become so commercialized. Only money counts and how to get it as quickly as possible.

Yeah, that's true.
That's why I have decided to stay away from costly habits.

### Re: Limits!

Good idea! Most habits rot your brain. Over here they are trying to make eating a costly habit.

Hi bobbym,

Eating is becoming a costly habit here too. So I would add an exception!

See you after a little break!

That's correct, good job!

Actually, the last line of the solution is wrong, as it violates
the Order of Operations.

It must use grouping symbols, such as

Hi gAr;

In #89 the problem looks like this:

I have to blow it up because on firefox it is difficult to see it.

Is that a z in the exponent?

Ugh, I wrote z there?
