```Dear Colleagues,

I tried Bob Hanlon's TrigReduce Table changing n from "{n, 4}" to "{n, 1, 3,
0.5}":

Table[{y = Sin[a]*Sin[b]^n, "=", TrigReduce[y]}, {n, 1, 3, 0.5}] //
TableForm

and neither the integer nor the non-integer exponent expressions evaluated
whereas the original example "{n, 4}" evaluates just fine. Why?

Best regards,

Table[{y = Sin[a]*Sin[b]^n, "=", TrigReduce[y]}, {n, 4}] // TableForm

Table[{y = Cos[a]*Cos[b]^n, "=", TrigReduce[y]}, {n, 4}] // TableForm
