Re: Q: lefthand/right hand side of equation


Well, it all depends how you choose to write your equation. You chose to
write it inside curly braces (why?). Then look at FullForm:

In[1]:=
eqn = {a + b == c + d}
Out[1]=
{a + b == c + d}
In[2]:=
FullForm[%]
Out[2]//FullForm=
List[Equal[Plus[a, b], Plus[c, d]]]

which means that you have

In[3]:=
eqn[[1, 1]]
Out[3]=
a + b
In[4]:=
eqn[[1, 2]]
Out[4]=
c + d
