# $e^\left({\frac{-alog(x1)}{a+b}+\frac{alog(x1)}{a+b}+\frac{alog(x2)}{a+b}-\frac{alog(x3)}{a+b}}\right)$ does not simplify in sage

I'm running the following code in sage but the answer is not simplified all the way:

```
eq=e^(-a*log(x1)/(a+b)+a*log(x1)/(a+b)+a*log(x2)/(a+b)-a*log(x3)/(a+b))
eq
Out: [e^(a*log(x2)/(a + b) - a*log(x3)/(a + b))]
show(eq)
```

$$e^{\left(\frac{alog(x2)}{a + b} - \frac{alog(x3)}{a + b}\right)}$$

what I wanted to get is along the lines of $$\left(\frac{x_2}{x_3}\right)^\frac{1}{a+b}$$

I've tried using `simplify_full()`

with no success. any help is appreciated.

Hi @EconJohn I do not see x3 in eq ?

@ortollj sorry my bad edited
