Why this requirement for "monomials in a to divide monomials in f"? What the heck does that mean, anyway? What's a "monomial"? Do they mean "a single term in polynomial"? And what do they mean one monomial can divide another? ANY term can be made to divide another just by putting one over the other with a "/" in between. Why so complicated. I'm just trying to do this:
Okay, here's my problem. I have something real simple like
and I want to make the following substitution:
a b = x
which if I did by myself would come out
But how do I make Maple do this? subs, algsubs and eval all fail.
Okay, algsubs can be made to do this but because of the "dividing monomials" thing it has to be in the form
Or some such which is so ugly that I couldn't even figure out how to do. As demonstrated above.
What I'm trying to make Maple do is one of the simplest moves in algebra. Is there some command I'm missing?
