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.
Example:
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.

CAS Syntax
