"5.6.1.1 Choosing an interval" example not working

Added by Paco Riviere about 1 year ago

I am trying example questions in the guide and don't succed with the example in 5.6.1.1 Choosing an interval
I am not able to compile any of the 5.6.1.1 example versions in EN and FR guides, both giving a FP-EVAL error message.
Am I missing anything or is there something wrong with them?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks to both of you.
Source included.

Error is like:

\pgfmathsetseed{2056} requires

\usepackage{pgf}
like \FPseed
\usepackage{fp}

\mathbb requires a mathematical package. By default, I use

\usepackage{amssymb,amsfonts,mathtools}

A tip to find the wrong line : comment \onecopy and the last brace before \end{document}
