### Basic Maple Syntax and Operations:

 Commands: A MAPLE command is a statement of a calculation followed by a either semicolon or a colon. If followed by colon, the result will be stored but not displayed.  Example: 12+20 followed by ; or :  in Maple gives: > 12+20;                                      32   > 12+20: colon (:) suppresses the display of the output.   Practice:  Download the attached Maple file and follow along!(To download the maple file, right click on the file, then choose "save link as..".) Arithmetic operations: The symbols +, -, * (or . ) , /, and ^ denote addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponentiation. When a string of operations are specified in a command, MAPLE first does exponentiations, then multiplications and divisions, then additions and subtractions. To change the order, use parentheses. Example:  > (2+3).(4+5);                                     45 > 10*(2+3);                                     50 > 7.12 /5;                                  1.424000000
