Why simplify does not simplify this expression ?

Q, Gamma, omega0 = var( 'Q', 'Gamma',  'omega0')
u = (Q * omega0 + Gamma) / Q
simplify(u)

The output is: $$\omega = \frac{Q \omega_0 + \Gamma}{Q}$$

Instead of: $$\omega = \omega_0 + \frac{\Gamma}{Q}$$

  1. 'simple' is a matter of definition (or taste)
  2. even in cases where it is rather obvious what the 'simple' answer would be, sage will frequently not live up to that ... see this one

anyway, I guess what you want is

u.expand()
