I'm trying to do something as simple as reducing k!/(k+1)! which should reduce to k+1 I've tried Simplify, Expand, Reduce, etc., and I can't figure it out. Anyone have any ideas? I'm using Mathematica 2.0, on a NeXT platform. Please respond privatly, as I'm not on the list right now. Thanks in advance --sarah <daphne at jamal.mills.edu>
