Sir What type of fraction is the following one
1/2/3/4/5/6 = 5/16 = 0.3125 by Wolfram partial decomposition Calculator
By Google Calculator and Microsoft Excel 1/2/3/4/5/6 = 1/720 = 0.00138888888
Please comment on the algorithms involved and advise.
The partial fraction decomposition calculator has an unusual interpretation of the input. For example 1/x y becomes 1/(x y). It is a design choice that leaves me uneasy.
Mathematica gives 1/2/3/4/5/6 = 1/720. Partial fractions have a special order of evaluation, from right to left. You must know what you are doing.
1/2/3/4/5/6 = 1/720
