# Talk:Calculated multichoice question type

## Poor example

Apologies because my math stopped at Algebra II many years ago. I am trying to sort out the difference between these calculated question types. I did not see an example of the question being asked. I thought the answer was similar to the calculated except that the teacher can add text.--Chris collman (talk) 22:18, 12 November 2015 (AWST)

### Perhaps an additional and more exciting example

However, when I tried this for the first time, I discovered by mistake that it would also display a formula in the answer. I was wondering about a question that said:

Given the binomial equation 3x^2+5xy+2y^2, where x = {A} and y={B} how would you simplify it before solving it? (Once I discover how to write one in MoodleDocs, I will come back with a correctly formatted example)

The correct choice would be written: "This polynomial can be reduced to (3*{A}+{B})({A}+2*{B})."

This choice would display as "This polynomial can be reduced to (3+2)(1+4)." --Chris collman (talk) 22:18, 12 November 2015 (AWST)
