# Simplification

When a mathematical expression is complicated, it is often useful to transform the expression into a form that is easier to understand. That's where simplification comes in. All sorts of math terms have equivalent forms that are more intelligible. Wolfram|Alpha can be used as a simplification calculator to simplify polynomials, Booleans, numbers, rational functions and many other math objects.
