I work in the It department for a college, and a biofuels teacher asked me how to view a MRD file.

I've done some surfing on the Internet about this file type, and it seems to be some kind of mathematical file.

I haven't found anyway to open this file except to download a program that's just a trial--this is the website for the trial software, http://www.mathrevolt.com/--is there any way to look at this type of file for free?

In reply to the administrative comment:

I'm learning how to use this site, and I'm not sure if there's a way I can reply to just to you by the message you just sent me, or is the reply just another post for everyone to see.

I have to do some research/reading, but can I give any question the highest # of points, or is it based on how hard/difficult I think the question is?

Thanks

Here is the Math Revolt website:

     http://www.mathrevolt.com/download.html

You can download a 60-day, fully functional version of the software for free.
That should certainly let you look at the file, but it is apt to be a lot of work.
You will have to install the software and learn to use it at least a little.

Try talking to the folks at Math Revolt, or to the originator of the file.
Maybe someone can convert it to a PDF for you.

Software companies tend to be friendly to Universities.

kevluck373,
I am curious why you accepted the comment you accepted. If it was because it mentioned trying the program the company provided then that just repeated what I said. I didn't make a point of it at the time, even though there was no credit, but I am puzzled by how this was closed. I know you are new here so if more than one expert's comment helped then you can even split the points. If you accepted the wrong comment or made some other mistake then just let us know.

Well I am new here, and I did try to split the points evenly, but it didn't seem that was going to happen.

Apparently, I have to grade each reply/message from each person instead of using just 2 of the reply/message box from each person. I wanted to give each a 25 but didn't work that way.

I tried to split it up between the 3 reply/message boxes but didn't work; tried to use decimals but didn't take it.

I'm still learning

I think this is/was a hard question to answer easily. I've spent a lot of time trying to find a solution to this myself that was free but had no luck

Thanks for the help/support
