This question already has an answer here:

I have this output:

a(b + c)d + 3

But I want it to become like this:

ad(b + c) + 3

How can I do that?

Is there a way without using HoldForm to do that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


a (b + c) d + 3 // TraditionalForm

a d (b+c)+3

that works for me.
