Re: Simplify Polynomials with Factor / FullSimplify


Just leave a space between a and b.

a^2 + b^2 + 2a b // Factor
(a + b)^2

Hello,

i want to simplify some of the polynomials in the form like:

a^2+b^2 +2ab --> (a+b)^2 


but even this simple term does not work with Factor / FullSimplify?

Any help?

thanks
