Why I have got this strange solution? See please the picture and the Mathcad 15 file in attach.
Solved! Go to Solution.
For some reason you have Mathcad in the position where it interprets 5h as 05h (that is 5, hexadecimal, equals 5 decimal). The same for a, it is 4h=4.
Because with h=1/2, you can have either:
a=2 and r=1.25,
OR
a=0 and r=1/4.
Which only plots the circle, as the square has sides of zero, and sits on -1/4,0.
Success!

Thanks, Luk!
It was one error from one my student. And I have showed him how we can work with PTC community.
1 Use units of length in geometry problems.
2 Use dot here: 3*h, a*(h-1m) etc.
