Creating a vector out of variables

Asked by Daniel Miller on 16 Sep 2019

Hello!
This might seem very simple, but if I have created, let's say, the following variables:
A = 1/(10^(-6));
B = 22^(1/4);
C = 4^(3+2);
Now, I should make a vector (named MySolutions) containing the solutions A to C.
Shouldn't it work by writing:
MySolutions = [A,B,C]
The output gives me:
mySolution =
1.0e+06 *
1.0000 0.0000 0.0010
I don't understand why the output looks so weird.
Any help is appreciated!

Use the format function to change the way they are displayed:
A = 1/(10^(-6));
B = 22^(1/4);
C = 4^(3+2);
format long E
MySolutions = [A,B,C]
format short g
MySolutions = [A,B,C]
format long
MySolutions = [A,B,C]
producing:
MySolutions =
1.000000000000000e+06 2.165736770667994e+00 1.024000000000000e+03
MySolutions =
1e+06 2.1657 1024
MySolutions =
1.0e+06 *
1.000000000000000 0.000002165736771 0.001024000000000
