    Calculates one function value based on a given formula that contains multiple variables.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    formula

    Formula of n independent variables. The formula can contain any number of valid variables.

    Entering Valid Variables

    This node accepts variables that use the following format rule: variables must start with a letter or an underscore followed by any number of alphanumeric characters or underscores.

    datatype_icon

    x values

    x values corresponding to variables.

    datatype_icon

    variables

    n independent variables of the given formula. variables has a one-to-one relation with x values.

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    y value

    Calculated function value.

    Algorithm for Calculating y value

    This node calculates y value using the following equation:

    y = f(x1, x2, ..., xn)

    where n is the number of independent variables in the given formula.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
