Just leave a space between a and b. a^2 + b^2 + 2a b // Factor (a + b)^2 David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Amanda Pearls [mailto:lightyears78 at yahoo.de] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net 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
