I am attempting to create some formula questions for the first time. Because I have never used this question type before I am unsure what they will look like for my students.

Is there a way for me to see what the solutions would be? I can see a list of generated variables with a result. All of those results look like they are whole numbers, but they aren't. The results listed inside the question are not the actual solutions. At first glance, I thought Canvas had generated all possible results with whole number solutions. This is what I wanted. Once I solve the equations I find they aren't actually whole numbers. Why is this the case?

My main concern right now is that I want to have them only find whole number solutions. My students are not ready for decimal solutions at this point in time.

Is there a way for me to restrict the solutions to the problems generated?

Why are the "results" listed not actually the solutions to the equations?

I will attach screenshots of the question I have created.

Thank you for any help you might give.

Sara, I'm not totally sure of the answers to your questions, so I've shared this with the Teaching Math in Canvas group and one of our Community members that I know is pretty familiar with the formulas.

In addition, I'm not sure if you've reviewed this guide or the resources attached to it, but they seem pretty helpful - How do I create a Simple Formula quiz question?
