I have a simple problem using the ReplaceAll operator. I am using version Mma. v. 2.04 on the NeXT (however the same happens on the MIPS Mma v.2.0) with the following results Sqrt[240] /. Sqrt[x_] -> 2 Sqrt[x/4] 4 Sqrt[15] Sqrt[480] /. Sqrt[x_] -> 2 Sqrt[x/4] Sqrt[480] Log[480] /. Log[x_] -> 2 Log[x/4] 2 Log[120] This kind of thing really shakes me up. Thomas B.
