Algebraic Expressions and Operations: Factoring Algebraic Fractions
MATLAB handles all calculations involving simple, rational, and complex algebraic expressions with mastery. It quickly and efficiently performs the operations of simplification, factorization, grouping, and expansion of algebraic expressions, no matter how complicated, including trigonometric expressions and expressions involving complex variables. All of this is possible provided the symbolic math Toolbox is available. The following is a list of commands which implement the algebraic transformations most commonly used in work with MATLAB.
