I have an expression like this (from an earlier computation):
I want to distribute the sum over the terms in the expression, i.e.
I suspect defining a rule and using applyrule should be the way to go, but for the heck of it I can't figure how to do it. The best I can manage is getting the Maple kernel hung with the following construct:
applyrule(distSum,(5)); # (5) referrs to the expression on line 2 (and it is a proper label in my Maple wrkbook).
I have asked similar questions before and gotten answers; but I am not able to find what I need in MapePrimes (or my faorites, for that matter).
Thanks for any help,
