This may be a FAQ so apologies in advance.
Help. I don't know what I'm doing wrong here.
I simply want Mma to replace N q with Q everywhere mathematically
possible, so that N^2 q^2 would be replaced by Q^2,
N^3 q^2 by N Q^2 and so on.
I tried the below but it didn't work and I'm not sure where I went
wrong. My guess is that N q and N^2 q^2 "look" different to Mma
so it doesn't touch it. But of course, N N q q is replaced by Q^2.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
