canonical_form(Ans) problem
Hello !

If I try to calculate the canonical form of a quadratic equation using Ans, the Prime says: "Error: Bad Argument Value" (see attached example)

If I copy/paste the last result in the parenthesis it works fine.
Same problem both on emulator as on the real Prime.

Problem confirmed, when using the "simplify" menu button to carry out the simplification.

However, entering "simplify(3*(x+1/3)^2+14/3)" directly from the keyboard and then doing "canonical_form(ANS)" works correctly.

For me was the same. Using the key Simplify the error appears but typing simplify (...) works correctly
