See if the attached helps.

Symbolic evaluations can be quite tricky and Mathcad is in no way reliable in that respect.

In case of your expression "simplify,max" helps, but it may not in the next example.

Simply try the example in your first post (square the absolute value). In that case it helps to simplify nominator and denominator separately.

Re: extreme simplification of an expression.

Why don't you attach your worksheet?

Re: extreme simplification of an expression.

...to be more correct I should ask how to reduce to the minimum terms the given expression?

Re: extreme simplification of an expression.

The result you gave in your first post does not fit to the expression you posted!?

And thats not only because of the missing f and the missing square.
