# sandbox-maxima-worked-example-1

Here is some text which opens the discussion. I’ll find out stuff later. Third line in 1st part. More text here. I wonder if it makes a separate paragraph. 2nd line in 2nd part. First formula. Something about random blurfage. 2nd line in 3rd part.

eqn : x^2 + 17*x + 29 = 0;

 $x^{2}+17\,x+29=0$
solve (eqn, x);

 $\left[x=-{{\sqrt{173}+17}\over{2}},x={{\sqrt{173}-17}\over{2}}\right]$
subst (first (%), eqn);

 ${{\left(\sqrt{173}+17\right)^{2}}\over{4}}-{{17\,\left(\sqrt{173}+17\right)}% \over{2}}+29=0$
expand (%);

 $0=0$

More text here. I wonder if percent sign stuff works.

abc : '(def + xyz);

 ${\it xyz}+{\it def}$
 ${\mathit{x}yz}+{\mathit{d}ef}$
 $xyz+def$
bcd : '(sin(x)+sin(x))\$


Dollar sign terminator on previous line. Hmm.

ev (bcd);

 $2\,\sin x$

Now bcd is simplified.

print(bcd);

 $2\,\sin x$

bcd was simplified by printing too. All finished. No, really!
