 Author Comment/Response Bill Simpson 03/14/13 1:03pm In Response To 'Re: Re: Finding coefficients of'---------"I guess I was just hoping there was some way to do it without then having to subtract n in my head afterwards." I'm deeply confused now. You have something like 3x^2+4x+5+6x^-1+7x^-2 and I thought you wanted to get {3,4,5,6,7} so I suggested you multiply by x^2 (my wording was bad and was missing a minus) and that gives you 3x^4+4x^3+5x^2+6x+7 and use Coefficientlist on that and get {3,4,5,6,7} which is what I thought you were asking for. If you can explain what I have misunderstood or provide a precise specification then perhaps I can figure out what I've done wrong and try to find a solution. URL: ,
