When you enter an expression, Scientific WorkPlace derives operations from the natural notation used
. For example, if you enter or Math software height="23px" border=none src="swptransparent.png" alt="">, Scientific WorkPlace understands what you are writing and will evaluate the expressions appropriately. This is not possible in other computation systems because they force you to be exact with your input syntax.
