# Error Code 414 while trying to do a substitution

I was trying to see what would happen if I let d=q in the following equation:

I assumed the natural language processing could handle this one, but I got the errors

Request to knowledgebase server api.wolframalpha.com failed with error code 414.

Request to knowledgebase server api.wolframalpha.com failed with error code 414.

I looked around to get a sense of what this error meant, but I could not find any details googling or searching on SE.

What does the error mean? Can Mathematica language processing handle these types of operations? If so, how should I phrase my requests to Mathematica?How would you do this without natural language processing in Mathematica?

You have defined f(x) = stuff but there is no x in the stuff. Instead, define

f[d_,q_]:= stuff


Then you can evaluate:

f[1,1]
1/48 E^(-4 t) (-16 + 16 E^(-2 t) + 8 E^(4 t) + 48 C[1])


or

f[x, x] // FullSimplify
`

to see what happens in general.
