Symbolic Mathcad Engine

I am running Mathcad Prime 6.0.0., but this still occurs in Mathcad Prime 8.

I am trying to use the symbolic engine to output a symbolic equation. In this example the equation has 6 constants and 1 variable. The output doesn't combine all of the constants due to the mixed units. For example a length is input as 58 ft + 6 in, so the symbolic engine can't combine it like it would if it were entered as 58.5 ft. This should be changed.

It would also be nice to be able to change the units at the end of the symbolic output like you can do with the numeric output.

In the example screenshot below the bottom the top equation which is symbolic is very convoluted due to the issues described above. The bottom equation which is numeric is very straight forward. All that was changed between the two is that in the bottom equation 1 kip was substituted for x.
