Hello,

**1/2 * sqrt(2)** is equal to **sqrt(2) / 2**. When you write **1/2 * sqrt(2)** it is different from **1 / (2 * sqrt(2))**.

So it is not a bug but the way Sage displays the result.

Hello,

This is just a problem of display. The quantity **1 / sqrt(2)** is just equal to **1 / 2 * sqrt(2)**. The latter is just another form of **sqrt(2) / 2**. And it is equal to the former if you divide both the numerator and the denominator by **sqrt(2)**.

So it is not a bug but the way Sage displays the result.

Note that it also happens for numbers themselves:

```
sage: 1 / sqrt(2)
1/2*sqrt(2)
```
