Trig vs hyperbolic handling differences in Prime CAS Message #1 Posted by Michael de Estrada on 8 Nov 2013, 2:35 p.m.
I posted this previously, but received no response so I'm trying again .
When I enter COS(x)^2+SIN(x)^2 in CAS I get the result 1, which is correct since this result is true regardless of the value of x. However, if I enter COSH(x)^2SINH(x)^2 in CAS I should also get 1 as a result, however, I simply get COSH(x)^2SINH(x)^2 as a result instead. If I replace x with a numerical value instead, then I get the proper result of 1. Why ? And yes I am in radians mode and have Exact unchecked when I do this.
