MultiplySides

MultiplySides[rel,x]

multiplies each side of the equation or inequality rel by x.

MultiplySides[rel1,rel2]

multiplies the corresponding sides of two equations or inequalities.

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 ab>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
