I have a small problem:
I have two expressions:
a = (ia*l^3*p0)/(12*ia*l + 6*i*la) b = p0*l^2/(12*(1 + 0.5*i/ia*la/l))
Obviously, they are equal. Just take expression a and multiply it by
1/(l*ia)/1/(l*ia) and finally factor out the
12 in the denominator.
Now I would like Mathematica to tell me if those two expressions are equal, therefore I used the following code:
But it does not tell me
Why is that?
Reduce[a==b] does the trick! :)
However, there is another example where it does not work:
Here is another example where it does not work
c = (l^3 la p0)/(24 e (2 ia l + i la)) d = p0*l^2/(24*e*(2*ia/i + i/l))
c is equal to
d. You can multiply
(1/(l*la)/(1/(l*la)) and you will get the same result as
Here I tryied: 'Reduce[c==d]`but it does not work.
