[Bug] Simplify Command in Algebraic View
Solved
Define 3 numbers in Algebraic View as follows:
a = 2
b = 3
c = a + b
Then, in the input field, input:
Simplify(c*x^2)
The result obtained is f(x)=3x^2+2.
Why not f(x)=5x^2?
This result appears in GeoGebra Classic 5.0.482.0d

Hi user6972!
Hmm, presumable a bug.
The reason is probably that GeoGebra reads for c*x² = a+b*x² but in CAS GeoGebra is doing right.
Fun fact: Simplify(c*b+a)=17 and not 13
Hmm, GeoGebra is inconsequent. ;)
kind regards

in CAS a=4 is an equation
please use a:=2
b:=3
c:=a+b
f(x):= c x^2
Please see also https://wiki.geogebra.org/e... to learn how to enter objects and values in CAS View
Haha! Thanks Noel! Both I and mathmagic are probably suffering for this awful heat wave that  in my case is reducing my already little reasoning capabilities to the bare minimum.
Please try the new version (v486)
