# How to change the order of the variables in an output? [duplicate]

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?

Try

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

a d (b+c)+3


that works for me.
