Re: Showing that ArcSinh[2]/ArcCsch[2] is 3?

Dear David,

It is the case in the CAS and in the real life as well that proving
left hand side equal to right hand side is easier than deriving
what right hand side the left hand side equals to.

I can not think of a direct way to use built-in 'knowledge' to reduce
ArcSinh[2]/ArcCsch[2] to 3, but want to point out that proving it
post-factum does not seem problematic:

In[3]:=
ArcSinh[2]/ArcCsch[2]-3//FullSimplify

Out[3]=
0

Sincerely,
