error with cosinus

When I type "cos(8pi/7)", Sage answers me cos(1/7pi)

wich is wrong. I exchanged with some people who had the correct answer "-cos(1/7*pi)". So I guess the problem is with my CPU or my configuration. But how to change that ? Thanks

In what version of SageMath are you observing that error?

This is the oldest version i have on some older machine, works well:

sage: cos(8*pi/7)
-cos(1/7*pi)
sage: version()
'SageMath version 7.5.1, Release Date: 2017-01-15'

This issue has been reported at https://ask.sagemath.org/question/336... and https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/20752 and fixed in Sage 7.3.beta4, see https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/20742 So, if you are running a Sage version, less than 7.4, let me just suggest to upgrade.
