--
--removed:
-t:=6*t
--removed:
-factor t
-factor(6*t)
++added:
There are several things to notice, in fact:
- The factorisation is nonsense
- I think that AlgebraicNumber should be able to simplify
$\sqrt{2}\sqrt{3}\sqrt{6}$ to $\sqrt{36}$
- shouldn't $sqrt{36}$ be simplified to $6$? Usually, 'sqrt' denotes the
positive square root.
