@Carl Love That is a point I wasn't sure about myself.

@nutnutman 

What I posted was just an idea. Don't really know what you are doing. Post a work sheet (as I did) with a more complex example. That might encourage others to look at the problem. Nobody wants to retype complex formulas.

I am using Maple 18. Documentation says Solidworks 2013 required. I am on SW 2015. Connection won't open. Have you access to SW 2013?

@Kitonum That works quitew well.

@Thomas Richard  Thank You

Well I can't see a way. I was oringinaly asking hopeing maple could automatically reduce the answer. The original problem was to do with a problem in Rational Trigonometry. I wandered off into the weeds working it out (with the help of Maple) as my answer shows. Here is a link to how the solution is arrived at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsQb0_Lgphc&list=PL3C58498718451C47 . I guess one would need to evaluate/ relate both solutions and see how one  relates to the other. I don't have a tidy worksheet that is worth posting. I could do one though.

Look like worksheet didn't attach. "nd try

In the definition of spherical coords the order is r, theta , phi

SetCoordinates('spherical'[r, theta, phi]),

in the definition of the Vector field the order is r, phi ,theta

A := VectorField(`<,>`(A_r(r, phi, theta), `A_θ`(r, phi, theta), `A_φ`(r, phi, theta)))

Why is this?

Thank you. That is a great help. Got something to work with now.

Thank you. That is a great help. Got something to work with now.

It would help is you could upload a worksheet. If the equations are polynomial or can be converted to polynomial try Groebner analysis.

It looks like part of the equation is missing at the end of the first line.

Thanl you .

So simple when you know. What is  op(op(%)) supposed to do? It works fine without it.
