divides each side of the equation or inequality rel by x.
divides the corresponding sides of two equations or inequalities.
divides each side of rel by the right-hand side, producing a 1 right-hand side.
Details and Options
- The relations rel can have any of the following forms:
lhs==rhs equations lhs!=rhs inequations lhs>rhs or lhs>=rhs inequalities ab>c≥… generalized inequalities
- The following options can be given:
Assumptions $Assumptions assumptions on parameters GenerateConditions All whether to generate conditions on parameters TimeConstraint 30 time allowed for simplifying conditions
- Possible settings for GenerateConditions include:
All return all possible answers using Piecewise Automatic return a condition only if it is not generically satisfied True return any condition that is needed False never return any needed conditions None return unevaluated if conditions are needed
