Are you using the newest version of from the develop branch, or the older one in the master branch?

How do I know? or better how do I find out? 

I copied the revised problem to a new problem, but the error message

This may be related to your question on versions. 

We're trying to develop our Webwork problems here for use in engineering. I'm having difficulty keeping my various versions and patches consistent. For example, learning to use 
  ($complexJ) ? ""  : "",
then inserting the load macro in, etc. 

Given that we want the text and the students to use j but it is OK for them to use i for sqrt(-1), what is the proper macro load. 

lastly, I understand I can change contexts in the middle of a problem. I don't understand the double call

This would appear to disallow the form rho *exp(j*theta) which is fine for this problem
the second line does what? I thought complexJ was a context and this looks like setting two contexts at one time.
