This is a result of floating point rounding. Most calculators and computers have it. It's not a bug, just a limitation on numeric representation. 1.25e-14 is so close to 0 that in real life you'd never notice the difference. Some calculators try to give you the answer you expect rather than what's actually calculated and so introduce errors of their own.

is pretty small!

Thanks Tom L. I don't see the same rounding in HOME (non-CAS). If I key in 1 angle 90degree, I will get (0,1). Is this intended? Thanks.

Thanks Tom. In HOME, I don't see the same issue. How is HOME different on this? Thanks.
