Without seeing exactly what you want done, I cannot 100% answer your question.

However for a formula question of `x` + `y` = ?

for the values of x and y, I select the min and max values and then for decimal places I select 0 - which will then cause Canvas to use only numbers with 0 decimal places (i.e. integers)

Here is a large picture showing all of the above in new quizzes :

I am speaking more to the answers being generated being restricted to integers only. I understand that this would limit the number of options available to generate.

An example would be x/2 + 3 = 7. I have teachers only wanting x values in integer form, no decimals. I can set the decimal to 0 but that just creates a rounding issue.

Okay. With your example, I am at a loss as to how that would be put in Canvas. X/2 + 3 = 7. Are you saying that they want to put in `X`/2 + 3 = ? then have canvas generate X that is even so that the result is an integer not an integer or a .5 addition to an integer?
