**Advice:**
Positive does not include 0

The type or property
**positive**
in Maple (as in standard mathematical English, although not in some other languages) means
**> 0**
, not
**>= 0**
. For
**>= 0**
you can use
**nonneg**
.

**Examples:**

`> `
**assume(x >= 0);**

`> `
**is(x,positive);**

`> `
**is(x,nonneg);**

**See also:**
__type/positive, type/nonneg__
,
__assume__
