Can anyone tell me how to define for example x/y as a value I.e 1? This is in context of a ratio. So I'm looking to define a ratio so that when I insert it in a formula MathCAD knows what the ratio value is?
WHen hen for example I write x/y I'm not allowed to define this I.e pressing : does nothing.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think that what you demand is possible (the variable name will look like x/y, not like a fraction), but the method to achieve a variable name like x/y is quite different wether you use Mathcad or Prime. So you would have to state which version (Mathcad 15 or Prime) you are using.
The only way I can get this in Prime is to launch Mathcad 15.
In 15: the key combination "cntrl+shift+k" tells Mathcad to accept any character as variable name, and x/y becomes your variable.
Save the file, open Prime, and convert the file to Prime. The variable x/y will survive the conversion.
But I can't figure out how to create it in Prime.

I think Werner posted a solution awhile back using this method. The things we learn from this collaborator;)
And I learned it from the collaboratory, too.
I just don't know whom to give credit for mentioning it first.
Cheers Everyone! the "" method certainly seems to work in Prime.
Question is, where would I be without the User Community???
I tell you where, still struggling with Excel...
