This app has some minor errors in use of Simplify Command: https://www.geogebra.org/m/A7XhJngw

The circled solutions should have resulted in a trinomial solution. These blue and pink expressions are randomly created.

use polynomial() for expanding the expresions but certainly it is strange that (x-3)(5x-6) has different behaviour than (x-13)(5x-6)

I thought the different behavior was unusual myself. Thanks, is it possible the Simplify command may need a minor adjustment?
