I've got a matrix in which every entry is of the form x/4. I cant find out how to factor out the 1/4 so that the actual matrix is clearer.

Thanks for your help!

  • $\begingroup$ I suspect you are so going to kick yourself in about 10 seconds. matrix*4, NOT matrix.4 $\endgroup$ – Bill May 14 '15 at 16:52
  • $\begingroup$ Yes. But what I meant was if mathematica can automatically factor that out so that the 1/4 is in front of the matrix? $\endgroup$ – McLawrence May 14 '15 at 17:13

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issued raised is not really a problem, but a misunderstanding of how Mathematica works. $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Dec 23 '15 at 6:17
