In[5]:= Factor[a^2 + b^2 + 2 a b] Out[5]= \!\(\((a + b)\)\^2\) ~Scout~ "Amanda Pearls" <lightyears78 at yahoo.de> ha scritto nel messaggio news:cro3ch$hge$1 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 >
