Re: Help with Identities


Hi,

because SameQ[]  === will test for identical 
elements
You mean Equal[] and try
Log[x/y] == Log[x] - Log[y] /. {{x -> 2, y -> 3}, 
{x -> 2, y -> 3 I}, {x -> -2 I, y -> 3 I}} // 
FullSimplify



Regards

  Jens

| Hello!
|
| As an occasional mathematican, I sometimes 
forget that i.e.
|
| Log[x/y] is very similar to Log[x] / Log[y]
|
| Is there some way in Mathematica to see how an 
mathematical
| expression could look like alternatively? 
(Something like the  opposite
| of Simplify.)
|
| And then I wonder why
|
| Log[x/y] === Log[x] - Log[y]
|
| is False.  Can I instruct Mathematica to explain 
why this is False?
|
| Best wishes,
|
| Sven
