mathematica gets a simple limit wrong?
Could anyone explain the following output of mathematica 4.0: In:= 1+Limit[a-Sqrt[a^2-a],a->Infinity] Out:= 3/2 In:=Limit[1+a-Sqrt[a^2-a],a->Infinity] Out:= 1 ????!!!!!!!!!!! Huh? I just moved the 1 inside the brackets and got a wrong answer? Makes me wonder about mathematica. bye, D. Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.
