Is there a way to configure Maxima to output the result as an improper
For instance, if I enter 3/4+3/4, then it outputs 3/2. Since I'm doing
arithmetic for a woodworking project, it would be easier if it would
output as 1+1/2. Or 1+4/8 would be super-useful, too. Is there a way
to make Maxima to do that?
P.S. Please CC me -- I'm not subscribed to the list.
P.P.S. I'm impressed with Maxima -- after using Mathematica and Matlab,
I'm thrilled to find a mature open-source computer algebra system! With
wxMaxima, I'll certainly be recommending it to many people!
