### DISTRIB

Type:
Command
Description:
Applies one step of the distributive property of multiplication and division with respect to
addition and subtraction. Used for single-stepping through a multi-step distribution.
Access:
Input:
An expression.
Output:
An equivalent expression that results from applying the distributive property of multiplication
Flags:
Exact mode must be set (flag –105 clear).
Numeric mode must not be set (flag –3 clear).
Example:
Expand
Command:
DISTRIB((X+1)*(X-1)*(X+2))
Result:
X*(X-1)*(X+2)+1*(X-1)*(X+2)

### DIV

Type:
Command
Description:
Returns the divergence of a vector function.
Calculus, !Ö
Access:
Input:
Level 2/Argument 1: An array representing a vector function.
Level 1/Argument 2: An array containing the variables.
Output:
The divergence of the vector function with respect to the specified variables.
Flags:
Exact mode must be set (flag –105 clear).
Numeric mode must not be set (flag –3 clear).
Example:
Find the divergence of the following vector function:
