Total N00b Math Max Question

October 9, 2012 | 8:33 am

I’m trying to multiply two numbers -0.989992 (cos(3)) and 0.46164, but for sure reason I’m getting no output into the flonum object. Does this have something to do with multiplying a negative number? What should I do?

Thank you in advance!

does your * object have a floating point argument? e.g. [* 1.0]

If it already has this, post your patch.

I was trying to multiply the two parts separately… I finally figured out that I had to do it as you say [* 1.0] and it worked out perfectly. Thank you so much, though!
