Controlling Digits output for same numbers used but different outputs

asked 2018-07-26 11:17:53 -0600

I am a teacher how is working with sagetex to automate some worksheets to save some time on creating different versions.

Worksheet Example

In my worksheets students are given numbers to 2 or 3 digits of accuracy, but later there is a solution guide attached, and I would like to change the level of accuracy. An example: 2.5 times 350 equals 875, but rounded to 2 digits is 880. I would like to change the accuracy of the solutions produced.

I am still very new to all this, and would love any advice or help.

Your links don't work. You should write any relevant code here instead. Do I understand correctly that for x = 875 and digits_accuracy = 2 you want to obtain round(x/10^(len(str(x))-digits_accuracy))*10^(len(str(x))-digits_accuracy)?

To share documents from CoCalc, in the "Files" view of your CoCalc project, select a file and click "Share"; this will give you a url on the CoCalc share server; use that url to let others see the file you made public.

Or you could ask help from the CoCalc team -- in that case use the help button at CoCalc; if you do that from the document you are having trouble with, or if you provide the url to it, they'll be able to access it and hopefully they can help.
