IMPORTANT EE RULES:
Count = Integers | Scale = Real Numbers | Most mathematical functions can only be done with Scale (dimensionless) values. | Display units (mm or inch) are considered as separate elements in the equation by the Editor
As Stefan said "So a sqrt of 25mm² will work because of 5*5 and mm*mm... but ask yourself what is the square root of mm?"
So distance values need to be converted to scale (dimensionless) values, which you do your desired function on, then convert the answer back into a distance value
V1 (scale) = [D1] 3.5 (mm) / 1 (mm) = 3.5/1 * mm/mm = 3.5 * 1 = 3.5 | V2 (scale) = [D2] 3.12 (mm) / 1 (mm) = 3.12/1 * mm/mm = 3.12 * 1 = 3.12 | V3 (scale) = math function(V1-V2) | D3 (distance) = [V3] 0.61644 * 1 (mm) = 0.616 mm
The equation TYPE is very important.
