It is also possible to "dig into" the expression using applyop and only simplify a part of it:
The second command line is not strictly necessary, I use the "f" to identify what the applyop is pointing at.
I guess maple is making an additional "simplification" of the fraction... anyway, it works in this instance:
If you like to have few, nice output fields and do not mind messy input fields, then maybe try this:
If your readers prefer pure old fashion math notation and would rather not see the Maple code, then you can click View-->Show/hide content --> input
If you think your reader then misses the left hand side of the equation, you can do this:
...and then hide the input field.
Your left hand side will then have some unwanted parentheses but it still reads nicer than the input field with code.
