2016-10-04 19:42:56 +0200 | commented answer | what does '3*sqrt(3)' means? @tmonteil, this seems weird. Why should Meth:sqrt return a simplified expression instead of the direct numerical value in some cases and not others? For instance, sqrt(6.1) gives 2. something directly, while I have to do n(sqrt(27)) to get 5. I get that this can be simplified and so it is, but why should that be its native behaviour instead of the decimal value? Also, is this a native Sage method or does it belong to some other package? |
