# Simplifying an inequality

I ask:

```
var('x,y')
ineq = (x+2<y+2)
simplify(ineq)
```

and get:

```
x + 2 < y + 2
```

How can I get Sage to simplify this inequality to:

```
x < y
```

?

You can simplify this using

```
solve(ineq,x)
```

why won't simplify multiply out square roots?

can sage be made to do this algebra?

No simplification is done to invert trigonometric functions ?
