Follow-up Comment #2, bug #53111 (project octave):

Thank you, this is significantly better. 

matlab must internally simplify prior to printing to the command window.

So for me this is an easy fix.


I think this can be closed, and I will just do the above from now on.


I agree with your thoughts about compatibility, since placing the same values
in the equation will produce the same final solution. 
However, in coursework a professor (or computer) may just see the equations
are different, and not award credit. 

For some reason I thought if I could expand then everything would go away. So
I tried.

help expand
error: help: 'expand' not found

I did not think of:

help simplify
error: help: 'simplify' is a method of class 'sym'; it must be called with a
argument (see 'help @sym/simplify').

Please read <http://www.octave.org/missing.html> to learn how you can
contribute missing functionality.
