Entering cos(N(pi)*(1+(5/63))) returns -0.969077286229078 which is correct, but entering N(cos(pi*(1+(5/63)))) returns 0.969077286229078. Similar things happen when 5/63 is replaced with other fractions, but not always. Usually if the fraction is "nice", like 1/4 or 1/5 then it seems to get the right answer. I assume this has something to do with the exact answer being able to be expressed nicely with square roots, but I don't really know. Same happens with sin as far as I can tell. Anybody else having this problem?
