## Question:how to use indets with type symbol but specific symbol?

Maple 2021

Given an expressions such as

```expr:=sin(x)+cos(x)*exp(x)+x*tan(x)*f(x)+x+y;
```

I want to use indets to find only the mathematical functions in it, and also symbol but only x symbol in this above. I can do the following to find the mathematical functions and symbols, but I do not know how to tell it to find type symbol which happend to be x. Since x is not a type.

```expr:=sin(x)+cos(x)*exp(x)+x*tan(x)*f(x)+x+y;
type_1:={function,typefunc(mathfunc)};
type_2:=symbol;
lis:=indets(expr,  Or( And(type_1),  type_2 ))

```

Which gives

But I really wanted this output

I know I can post process the outout using has or remove, to remove symbol y. But is it possible to do that using indets? something similar to specfunc but specsymbol ? I looked at the help page for Definition of a Structured Type in Maple but do not see anything there so far.

I tried

```expr:=sin(x)+cos(x)*exp(x)+x*tan(x)*f(x)+x+y;
type_1:={function,typefunc(mathfunc)};
type_2:={symbol,identical(x)};
lis:=indets(expr,  Or( And(type_1),  And(type_2) ))
```

but it gives same output.
