subs command does not create symbolic variable?

1 view (last 30 days)
I am using MATLAB R2011a. I have symbolic math toolbox installed. When I use the "subs" command to replace a value in a symbolic variable, instead of symbolic variable a normal variable is created ... My code is
>> f=int(g,x)
f =
asin((2*x)/5 - 4/5)/2
>> subs (f,x,3)
ans =
0.2058
What am missing?

It is difficult to know, since your version is so old. It works fine for me. For eample, since I do not have g, I did this:
syms x
f = asin((2*x)/5 - 4/5)/2
f =
asin((2*x)/5 - 4/5)/2
subs(f,x,3)
ans =
asin(2/5)/2
with no problems. But I am using the current release.

You've evaluated
asin((2*3)/5 - 4/5)/2
which is indeed 0.2058. It's no longer symbolic?
