- 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.

## CAS Syntax

- Simplify[Function]
- Simplifies the terms of the given function, if possible. Undefined variables can be included in the terms.

**Example:**

`Simplify[3*x+4*x+a*x]`

gives you *x*(a+7)*.
