Simplify online

**Symplify an expression** or **cancel an expression** means reduce it by grouping terms.
The calculator allows with this computer algebra function of reducing an algebraic expression.
Used with the function expand, the function simplify can expand and collapse a literal expression.

The calculator is able to do **calculation with letters** (literal calculation),
this function allows you to group, collect the terms of an expression to obtain a reduced form of this expression.

To **simplify an expression**, enter the **expression to cancel** and apply the function simplify.
Thus, for the **simplification of the expression** following a+2a,
type simplify(a+2a)
or directly a+2a, after calculating the reduced form of the expression 3a is returned.

The calculator simplification possibilities applies to alphanumeric expressions and therefore also to purely numerical expressions.

The **symplify calculator** also applies to numeric expressions, it allows to do **exact calculation** with numbers :

- For example, the calculator is able to simplify the following expression 1+2-5, to get the result of this calculation, enter simplify(1+2-5), the calculator returns -2
- Another example of expression that the calculator is able to simplify `1+2-5/3`, to reduce this expression, enter simplify(1+2-5/3), after calculating the result `4/3` is returned.

This calculator offers the possibility to **simplify a fraction**, to do
**expression calculation composed of fractions** and
to give the result as an **irreducible fraction** as the specialized
fraction calculator
does. The
fraction calculator
has however the particularity to provide the steps of the calculations allowing to obtain the
reduced fraction
.

The algebraic calculator can for example simplify a fraction like this : `2^(k+1)/2^k`, just enter : simplify(2^(k+1)/2^k). It should be noted that in this fraction, the numerator exponent and the denominator exponent contain letters. Thanks to its literal computing capabilities, the calculator can easily simplify this fraction.

The calculator allows you to manipulate complex numbers in their algebraic form,
it can **simplify an expression composed of complex numbers** as does the site's
complex number calculator
.

The calculator uses different methods to simplify mathematical expressions: it uses function parity to simplify certain results.

For example, to simplify the following expression simplify(cos(x)+cos(-x)) , the calculator uses the parity of the cosine function. For some calculations, the calculator specifies the properties used to simplify the results, as shown in the previous example.

The calculator also allows you to manipulate trigonometric expressions, it can simplify this type of expression by using the usual trigonometric formulas .

It is thus possible to use this calculator as a **trigonometry calculator** to
**simplify trigonometric expressions** such as the following
simplify(cos(x+pi/2)+cos(-x)+sin(x+pi)).
For some calculations, the calculator specifies the properties used to reduce the results, as shown in the previous example.
