dana, i am extremely frustrated with sage. for some reason it will not allow me to open a html box. i keep getting an error that says "â€¦..error. i will try to fix the problem but it will get ugly." im not sure what that is supposed to mean. do you know why it will not let me open the html box?? i have started new worksheets, open and closed the internet, tried a different computer, waited a couple hoursâ€¦nothing works.

thanks

kayla

Hmmm, that's a pain. I'm sorry that it is causing problems. Skip the HTML box stuff for now. Can you stop by tomorrow sometime and we can take a look? If you tell me in person what you would write if it was working, then we'll call it good. Don't stress out about it; it's a minor thing.

I am sorry that I could not stop by today. Is it possible for me to stop by on Monday morning around 9 or 9:30?

hi dana. so im trying to do the sage. i am trying to factor the first problem but when i push evaluate the same formula comes up and its not factored and i am writing out factor before i write the formula

Can you paste in exactly what you are typing into Sage? (Respond below.) Tell me what all the relevant cells are. Are you remembering to use * or multiplication?

factor(x^7-10*x^6+12*x^5+11*x^4-441*x^3+648*x^2-436*x+112)

Leigh Anne,

You have a typo on your 4th term. The coefficient should be 114 instead of 11. That should fix your problem.
