Interesting! But, I don't think I am correctly communicating what I'm 
after yet. (Although, I admit that I am struggling some to keep up with 
you guys in your Mathematica replies due to my inexperience.)

The original expression that I put up for illustration is:

-Cf^2 L2^2 Rg^2 Vg^4+3 (4 C Rg^2 Vd^2+4 Cf Rg^2 Vd^2+2 C Rg^2 Vd Vg)

We compare 4 C Rg^2 Vd^2 to 4 Cf Rg^2 Vd^2 because the two terms share 
common coefficients so that they "reduce" to (4 Rg^2 Vd^2+4 Rg^2 Vd^2) 
(C+Cf) . Thus it becomes obvious that C may be discarded w.r.t. Cf.

Please forgive if I have missed the correct application of your 
suggestion, and thanks for the interest.

Dave
