Differences in equation interpretation

Hi,



The equation image.png transforms correctly to t=[v_[i]/[gμ]]
But the equation image.png transforms correctly to t=[v_[i]/μg] which is usually interpreted as t=[v_[i]/μ]*g.

What is the logic as to why the two are different?

Dear Yousuf,

thank you for the explanation, I could better understand.

Currently, when writing t=v_[i]/µg, the denominator is usually recognized as micro gram, while when writing t=v_[i]/gu, the denominator is recognized as g multiply mu.

The reason is that in our math engine, microgram has more weight than mu multiply g.

If you do not want the micro gram to be recognized, then you can create your own math gramar definition removing micro gram in the latter (see https://developer.myscript.com/docs/interactive-ink/1.3/ios/advanced/build-custom-resources/#math)

Dear Yousuf,


thank your for contacting us.


Currently, the images are not attached, it is therefore difficult for us to understand the behavior you are facing.


Can you please attach these again (or provide a link where we can download these)?

Dear Yousuf,

Thank you for the images.

If I understand well, you are writing t=[v_[i]/µg] and would like to have it recognized as t=[v_[i]/µ]*g?

Currently, our solution doesn't claim to interpret but recognize exactly what is written.

Best regards,

Not quite. I am asking why t=v_[i]/µg=[v_[i]/µg] but t=v_[i]/gµ=[v_[i]/[gµ]]? In words, when a full fraction is entered with the denominator having a typical latin character (g in this case) followed by other characters the interpreter places brackets [] around the denominator (expected behavior). When a non latin character is the first character in the denominator of a full fraction is not a typical character (µ in this case) then no brackets are placed around the denominator (unexpected behavior since order of operations will treat the characters, beyond the first, as not part of the denominator).
Thus the question is, what is the condition for placing brackets around the denominator of a full fraction?
