Simplify[Function]
Simplifies the terms of the given function, if possible.
Example:
Simplify[x + x + x] gives you a function f(x) = 3x.


Simplify[Text]
Attempts to tidy up text expressions by removing repeated negatives etc, e.g. for a=b=c=-1

Simplify["f(x) = "+a+"x²+"+b+"x+"+c] returns "f(x)=-x^2-x-1".

Note: The FormulaText Command normally produces better results and is simpler.
