Default JSP 2.0 book question...re: variables

New to JSP and following the above book exercises.

Even the simplest request for a value from a variable does not get "processed" by the server but is just displayed like so:

"code snippet"

4 * 4 is ${4 * 4}

Should display result of that in curly braces (16) but when processed by BEA WebLogic server as a web app it doesn't throw errors but just repeats value:

"DISPLAY SNIPPET"

4 * 4 is ${4 * 4}

In several other exercises from the book the same thing is happening. Up to chapter two all jsp pages run and display OK but variables are not evaluated.
