We revise and update this wiki. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you.

All variables and functions are interpreted in a number field which can be defined within the

question environment by the `\field{...}`

command. It can take one of the following values:

number field | Description |
---|---|

real | real numbers (i.e. decimal numbers); this is the `default` value if the `\field{number field}` command is omitted |

integer | integer numbers |

rational | rational numbers |

complex | complex numbers with real numbers as real and imaginary parts |

complex-rational | complex numbers with rational numbers as real and imaginary parts |

If the number field is chosen to be *real* or *complex*, there is the issue of precision -

on one hand for displaying the numbers/functions, and on the other for the correction.

The display precision always has to be greater of equal to the corrector precision.

For displaying variables defined by `\number`

,`\randdouble`

, or `\randrat`

one uses the

command **\displayprecision{\ }** which defines the number of digits

used for displaying.

When a number was created by the `\function`

-command (or `\substitute`

or `\derivative`

)

using the *calculate* option, the precision defined with the above command will be

ignored. This is because computations should not be rounded while not visible to the user.

In case you do want to display the calculated value then set the precision within the command,

`\function[calculate,3]{f}{c/3}`

.

Again this value should be $$\geq$$ corrector precision.

The precision used for correction depends on the type of the answer.

For type input.number, one uses the command**\correctorprecision[\<correctorOption>]{\ }**

similar to

`\displayprecision`

, but with an optional argument as follows:**atleast**means that the answer must be typed in (rounded) with atleast the given precision.**This is the default option.****rounded**means that the answer must be rounded.If you use this option, make sure you tell the user that they must round the result with the given precision

**truncate**means that the answer should not be rounded, and should just be typed in up to the defined number of decimal digits.

*If \correctorprecision is not specified, then the generic problem will use the defaultvalue of 2.*

For answers of type input.function the precision is given as an optional argument in the

command that specifies how to check the given answer for correctness.

See Corrector commands for input.function.
