How to simplify an expression without structure it

M.E shared this question 4 years ago
Needs Answer

I have made an expression for a 2. grade function and would like to simplify it so that 0x is left out of the expression and so that 1x = x and -1x = -x, but without structure it so that the parts of ax^2, bx and c comes in a random order.


How can I do that ?

try Sum(Shuffle({Polynomial(a x²), Polynomial(b x), Polynomial(c)}))

To ommit the 1 for a and b and the zero for b and c you can use f(x)=Polynomial(a x² + b x+c).

But if you want to display the three terms in random order, you can make seperate texts of them and show a permutation of these three texts.
