One way is ((A/B)-C)/D//Apart (A-B C)/(B D) Another is ((A/B)-C)/D//Simplify (A-B C)/(B D) Have fun. Alexei Another question, along the same lines. Some of the solutions Mathematica gives me include compound fractions of the form ((A/B)-C)/ D. Again it seems to me most authors would rewrite this as a simpler fraction -- can I get Mathematica to do the same? Where these questions are coming from: Mathematica is now compatible with Word's equation editor, so it's become more desirable for Mathematica's output to look close to what's conventional in a paper.
