Autosimplification: CAS does, Calc Suite doesn't
Answered
In the CAS Calculator, if I define f(x) = (x^21)/(x1), it automatically simplifies to x+1, and if you compute f(0) you get 1.
In the Calculator Suite, making the same definition, there's no simplification done and f(0) is undefined (as it should be).
Why the difference? Why does the CAS autosimplify? Can I turn that off?
Similar questions from 5+ years ago led to using the "KeepInput" command which doesn't seem to exist anymore. ????

I trust you mean f(1), since f(0) is defined in both cases. Why is it that you want the unsimplified version? Surely in this case, the CAS version is the 'better' method and the Calculator Suite is "wrong", given that the function does not have an asymptote. Wouldn't you want the Calculator Suite to simplify, rather than the other way around?
Classic CAS and new CAS both autosimplify:
Graphing Calculator and Classic Algebra View don't. Sorry, there are no plans to add options for that
