Confusing derivative(sqrt(1sinx)) result Bug? [SOLVED]
Derivative of sqrt(1sinx) should be cosx/2sqrt(1sinx) but it returns a long confusing result and it cant be simplified.

As I get everything correct in CAS on the emulator you should show us a screenshot.

Hi Arno,
I tried on HP Prime Pro app and pc(both rev.13441),same result. Here are the screenshots from pc. Volkan

RE: Wrong derivative(sqrt(1sinx)) result Bug?
sqrt(1sin(x)) is autosimplified to sqrt(2)*abs(sin(pi/4+x/2)), because it's much better not to deal with "false" sqrt, for example if you want to integrate sqrt(1sin(x)).
The derivative is sqrt(2)*cos(x/2pi/4)*abs(sin(x/2pi/4))/(2*sin(x/2pi/4)), it looks complicated but it is not: it's the product of a cos by a sign. If you make assumptions on x like assume(x>0 && x<pi/2), you will not get absolute values, and the derivative is simpler sqrt(2)*cos(x/2pi/4)/2

It seems as calc gives different variation of result if "√" is used instead of "^1/2" for this derivative. Thanks parisse for comprehensive explanation.

Hi DRD, I forgot to write the negative sign. I edited the main post. I shared screenshots to clarify the problem. Thanks

Another way to get it: sqrt(asin(x))'
