You have to use something like HoldForm and this may or may not interfere with further calculation. You could use: a \[Theta]11/(1 + a^2); % /. (r = Coefficient[%, \[Theta]11]) :> HoldForm @@ {r} // TraditionalForm a/(1+a^2) \[Theta]11 The TraditionalForm is necessary to get the desired order of the two factors. With the Presentations Application you could use: <<Presentations` a \[Theta]11/(1 + a^2) // MapLevelParts[HoldForm, {{1, 2}}] // TraditionalForm a/(1+a^2) \[Theta]11 And I'm sure you'll get a number of other answers. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/index.html From: PiMan [mailto:kevingrady4 at gmail.com] Hi, I have a formatting question. In the output of an equation I am getting the term (a*\[Theta]11)/(1+a^2). However, \[Theta]11 is the variable of interest here, and I would like the term to be written as as a coefficient times \[Theta]11 and not include \[Theta]11 in the ratio. That is, I would like the output to read (a/(1+a^2))*\[Theta]11 instead. Does anyone have an idea of how I might be able to do this? Thanks.
