#### Numer

-- Option variable: numer `numer` causes some mathematical functions (including exponentiation) with numerical arguments to be evaluated in floating point. It causes variables in `expr` which have been given numerals to be replaced by their values. It also sets the `float` switch on.

See also `%enumer`.

Examples:

```          (%i1) [sqrt(2), sin(1), 1/(1+sqrt(3))];
1
(%o1)                   [sqrt(2), sin(1), -----------]
sqrt(3) + 1
(%i2) [sqrt(2), sin(1), 1/(1+sqrt(3))],numer;
(%o2)      [1.414213562373095, .8414709848078965, .3660254037844387]```

There are also some inexact matches for `numer`. Try `?? numer` to see them.

```(%o1)                                true
(%i2) ```
