    I have this long equation and I'd like to know if I can get Matlab to simplify to Vo/Vi = ? The equation is from problem 3a. I hope I got it right so far.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I don't think matlab is setup for that sort of thing. I remember using maple for that sort of thing back in freshman or sophomore college math.

    What about the solve function? I just thought of it, but haven't tried it yet. Maybe: solve(equation, vo/vi)?

    I don't know. I use matlab to solve stuff that have actual numerical value. The problem you showed does not have any numbers, all the variables are symbolic and I remember doing that sort of thing with maple.
