You will want to define a "context" for your PGML homework problem. If your answers will be numbers or formulas, then just set it to Numeric and do not worry about it for now. Later you may want to learn about other contexts to allow things like strings and inequalities. The second line tells WebWork to accept student submissions as correct if they differ from the correct answer given below by 1% or less.

The is what you will be changing the most as you create your own problems. What the student sees always goes in between BEGIN_PGML and END_PGML. If you want to include LaTeX, simply enclose it inside [` and `]. Your answer field is represented by [____________]. After the answer field, you specify the correct answer you desire in braces. In this example, the correct answer for the first question is a number and for the second it is an algebraic expression. If your answer is a number or formula, you can happily use the Compute function for a long time. Your problems can have only 1 question or even more than 2 if you wish. By the way, the hash marks which being and end this section are optional. I include them so I can easily see this part of any PGML problem quickly and easily.
