( and ) You can also use square brackets, [ ], and braces, { }, for grouping, e.g. [1+2]/[3(4+5)] Mathematical Constants Available In WeBWorK pi gives 3.14159265358979, e.g. cos(pi) is -1 e gives 2.71828182845905, e.g. ln(e*2) is 1 + ln(2) Mathematical Functions Available In WeBWorK abs( ) The absolute value sqrt( ) Square root exp( ) The same function as e^x log( ) The logarithm with base 10 logten( ) Another name for the logarithm with base 10 ln( ) The natural logarithm (base e) sin( ) Note: sin( ) uses radian measure cos( ) Note: cos( ) uses radian measure
