Wolfram Alpha (https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=% ... 9+simplify) says that I can turn: x-1/x = (x-1)(x+1)/x That would make the answer right but am I missing some sort of rule or something? I don't know how the above line can work? The answer is (x^2-1)/2x Could somebody please explain that jump from x-1/x to (x-1)(x+1)/x for me please? Thank you.

I take it you're aware that sinh(x) is defined as and so sinh(ln(x)) = (x - 1/x)/2. Tags function, hyperbolic, question, simple ,
