Not sure if this is a bug or not, but:

solve([(h/x1) = (tan(a1)),(h/(x1+x2)) = (tan(a2))],[h,x1])



in degrees and gradians mode, but returns:


in radians mode. All other setting the same.

Simplification set to minimum or none returns the same result. Simplification set to maximum, angle set to radians returns:


I didn't go thru all the math, but I believe all results are mathematically equivalent. I just would have expected the simplification process to be independent of the angular unit setting.
