One way is


(A-B C)/(B D)

Another is


(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.
