## Echo an equation

This should be simple.  I have an issue where I define an equation and get a useful result.  But further down in the mathcad sheet I just need to echo the equation that defines the variable to the user so he can make other determinations from the equation.  How do I do that?  See attached.

I need the means to do this in Mathcad 15 and in Prime 8.0.

From help page of explicit.

5.To perform the above numeric calculation without using explicit, use the clear.sym function to clear the symbolic values of all variables:

6.Use explicit to display formulas in terms of variables, without substituting values for the variables defined elsewhere in the worksheet:

I see how this may be used.  I don't see the mechanics of how to implement it Mathcad 15.  See below example in Prime 2.0 in attachment

In MC15 you can hide the keywords and make the arrow look like a normal equal sign

In (real) Mathcad you cannot have the symbolic keywords above the arrow, that is a feature introduced in Prime.

Success!

Do you mean like this?

• Copy the equation, paste below..
• delete the trailing evaluation " ="
• REPLACE the defining " := " with the boolean comparison equal " "

Works in any Mathcad.

No success yet.  See attached.  Maybe there is a default in Mathcad 15 that needs to be set?

Hope this helps:

You are amazing!  I had given up on this.  I had figured out some work arounds but the workarounds required that I change the company template.  That wasn't palatable for the rest of the people in my group.

Thank you!
