Just divide the numerator and denominator of the first expression by e^(1) to get the second expression. What you want and what this code produces are the same thing. > > As to your second question, just the two lines > > a = x(k) + a*f*e^(1); > b = 1 + b*f*e^(1); > > would need to be changed to: > > a = x(k) + a*f*e^(1/20); > b = 1 + b*f*e^(1/20); > > Roger Stafford Ok, thank you!
