Why does my answer appear as (as example) 1234567/987654*pi^2? Why will it not appear as a number? If I then copy and paste the answer, and hit enter, I get the number. But why when I type W= do I get the equation? I have tried changing the format to short, shortE, shortG...anything. Thanks.

Is W a symbolic variable?

The type sym has a specific way of displaying results.
Just convert to double
double(W)
