In formula equations the user can specify what 'variables' are to be used. For example [e] indicates that e might be used as a variable to be randomly assigned.
e shows up in the list of randomly assigned variables. For example, the equation could be entered as
4*e and the the random value of e displayed might be 7, but the result is 19.03...
This is because the back end uses the constant e (as in natural-log) not the randomly assigned value and displayed value of e. I assume that also would be the case for pi or any other constant that might exist in the system.
Either the system should not allow built-in constants to be a variable, and a warning displayed. Or the the constant-value should be overwritten for this problem scope.
