Hi, I am having trouble with your formula questions. The calculations seem to come out wrong.

What does an unrecognized token mean?

Thanks!

Michael Spudic - You submitted this question to the Canvas Community (which is essentially anyone who uses Canvas) rather than to your instructor at PLTW. This sounds like a question that should be directed to your instructor. When you click HELP in Canvas, instead of "Ask the Community" I suggest you instead click on "Ask Your Instructor a Question." That way it will go to your Instructor.

Ken, isn't this the Instructor view of this type of question? My guess is that the person got the materials from Project Lead the Way and is trying to work with them as an Instructor.

You have better eyes than I do, Kona! You are absolutely right, of course! Apologies....I should stay away from math questions, anyway! (You wouldn't happen to know anyone who can help, would you? )

Ken, I *might* have shared this with a certain person that knows math questions in Canvas better than anyone else I know.

The unrecognized token error means that you have typed in a formula that the parser was unable to recognize.

In your case, it's the brackets [] that is causing the problem.

You use

**[x]**in the question text, but just**x**in the formula, so it should be**50*10/x**and not**50*10/[x]**
