Dear all,
A quick question: does Mathematica not apply the same rules for testing the equality of two terms that are applied for Simplify?
How can Mathematica help me determining whether two terms are equal?

In[1]= (a+b)/c==a/c+b/c
Out[1]= (a+b)/c==a/c+b/c
In[2]= Simplify[a/c+b/c]
Out[2]= (a+b)/c

I would expect: Out[1]= True

Thank you for your help!
