I'm doing some fairly complicated algebraic computations, and I often want to check if LHS==RHS but something has started happening when I use the "is equal" command (==). Not only am I getting a return value of exactly what I entered, but when I try Expand[%] I just get a repeat of what I entered, with no True/False designation.

Do I need to reduce or expand my expressions before I try a comparison like that? Is something wrong with my Mathematica? Is there another command that would be more appropriate for what I'm trying to do?
