Re: HP Prime Collect/Factor difference Message #4 Posted by Eddie W. Shore on 29 Oct 2013, 9:36 a.m., in response to message #1 by bluesun08
To my understanding, collect organizes the algebraic object:
Example:
collect(x^2+3*x*t2*t^2+2*x,x) returns x^2+3*x*t+2*x2*t^2
collect(x^2+3*x*t2*t^2+2*x,t) returns 2*t^2+3*x*t+x^2+2*x
While factor attempts to factor a polynomial.
