Does anyone have any suggestions for the following undesirable behaviour of Sqrt? (A) In[1] := Positive[Sqrt[2]] Out[1] := True In[2] := Positive[Sqrt[E]] Out[2] := True In[3] := Positive[Sqrt[Pi]] Out[3] := Positive[Sqrt[Pi]] (B) In[1] := Sqrt[12] Out[1] := 2 Sqrt[3] In[2] := Sqrt24] Out[2] := Sqrt[24]
