I didn't study maths in English so apologies for this trivial question.
How do you say in English when you have a formula
3n + 3 and you want someone to convert it into
I only know about "rearrange" but that's usually about equality, like
U=I*R can be rearranged to
U/I = R etc.
Isn't there a more explicit word for this?
For example if I expect
4a - 4b to be the final result from
2a - 4b + 2a and someone also does this
4(a - b), what would I say?
Replace the end of sentences (those are my guesses):
"I want you to just add polynomials, you didn't have to <segregate the 4>?"
"I want you to just add polynomials, don't worry about <inverse of redistribution>?"
