Tasks: simplify – examples

Example

With a task 4+5, AlgebraKiT will evaluate the sum, because 9 is a simpler expression than 4+5.

Try it yourself:

  • 2x+4x+4
    AlgebraKiT will combine the like terms.
  • x(x+1)
    AlgebraKiT will do nothing. Expanding the brackets is not necessarily ‘simpler’.
  • x(x+1)-x^2
    Now AlgebraKiT will expand the brackets, because it can then cancel terms and reach a simple result.
  • \frac{2x+4}{x^2+2x}
    Using the mathematical knowledge that AlgebraKiT has, it decides to factor both numerator and denominator and cancel factors to reach a simpler result.
