If I enter 2.5*log(100000.0+18589), it produces some decimal output and a result that reorganizes the input expression. Typing in some expressions seems to get one into integrate or graphics mode. This does not seem like a comfortable tool. Typing in pi gives output false! Following it with r=3 gives a solution and a choice to plot or store variable. If I don't store it, and enter pi*r, it offers to differentiate or integrate. Storing r=3 and then entering pi*r works OK. Just a little weird. Help might very useful. Not a comfortable learning curve.
