RE: Simplifying Rational Expressions
If I make
simplify((u^(n+1)*v^(n+1))/(u*v^(n+3))) I get a little bit further to u^(n+1)/(u*v^2), but it is not able to reduce the fraction to u^n/v^2. If I try to simplify the exptression u^(n+1)/(u*v^2) I get what you already got. BTW: If I try expand(((u*v)^(n+1))/(u*v^(n+3))) with the TI89 Titanium I get (u*v)^n/v^(n+2). If I do expand((u^(n+1)*v^(n+1))/(u*v^(n+3))) I get u^n/v^2. So this is not perfect but better than the Prime. Result with TI nspire CX IIT CAS: expand(((u*v)^(n+1))/(u*v^(n+3))) > (u*v)^n/(u*v^(n+3)) expand((u^(n+1)*v^(n+1))/(u*v^(n+3))) > u^n/v^2 So it seams that the brackets in the numerator make things more difficult. It's really strange because it is mathematically so simple. Best Raimund
