Re: Re: unable to FullSimplify

A slightly different idea might be to 'remove'  a part

 

Here are the 3 problem equations:

 

e1 = Expand[a + (a + b)^4]; 

e2 = Expand[x + (x + x^2)^4]; 

e3 = Expand[x + (x + x^2)^ 16]; 

 

(* This doesn't do much at all...*)

 

FullSimplify /@ {e1, e2, e3}; 

 

(* This helps a little *)

 

FullSimplify[e1 - a] + a

 

a + (a + b)^4

 

FullSimplify[e2 - x] + x

 

x + x^4*(1 + x)^4

 

FullSimplify[e3 - x] + x

 

x + x^16*(1 + x)^16

 

Interesting subject.
