Differentiate display of vector result from range result

Differentiate display of vector result from range result

Currently (in prime 3.1) there is no difference between the way a vector is displayed (a result of a function evaluated over a vector) and the way a ranges or results of a function evaluated over a range is displayed, but you must use them differently. (you cannot 'augment' or 'max' function results of ranges).

In my experience especially new users who are not very used to working with matrices/array's struggle with this.

"A random list of numbers."

I know about range variables; but those certainly aren't random.

And I know about vectors and matrices (AKA :arrays").

Prime has tables (which are coordinated groups of vectors.)

I can't figure out how to make a "random list" that isn't by default a vector.

Can I get an example?

I think, that Agnes Uijttewaal is speaking about range variables and vectors and their numerical evaluations in Mathcad Prime.

range_variable= and vector= outputs have the same appearance.

Check! that's what I mean!

I understand!  But, "twas ever thus":

The in-line evaluation turns the range variable to a vector in both Prime (3.0) and Mathcad 15.
