Evaluating A Function For Negative Numbers VS Positive Numbers

bwpbruce shared this question 5 months ago

Why is it that when I evaluate a function for a negative number I get a decimal but when I do it for a positive number I get a fraction. I'd prefer to get fractions not decimals. For reference. For this function f(-2) = 4/9 and f(-1) = 2/3. I just am unable to get Geogebra to display this. I find this to be strange. Does anyone have an explanation as to why? What am I doing wrong? What settings do I need to change for Geogebra to display my preferences?

I think that is currently not possible by using GeoGebra settings.

But this is a nice idea to communicate to the developers for future improvements. I'm addressing your request to them.
