# subs_expr with e^t

Is there a reason why subs_expr() won't work here?

Use a wild card (a variable that matches everything) to do complicated subs_expr. I would suggest this technique to be written in sage tutorials. It is very useful to me.

```
sage: t = var('t')
sage: foo = e^t
sage: w0 = SR.wild(0)
sage: foo.subs_expr(e^w0==e.n()^w0)
2.71828182845905^t
```

Auto-substitute complex term to ease numeric evaluation

equation not simplifying and substituting properly

Change of variable in an integration

substituting expressions for numbers

Changing notation in differential forms

Is there any way I can substitute a combination of variables.
