It doesn't simplify these ones.

    Hi,

    Qalculate is awesome factorizing and simplifying, but I just found out that it doesn't simplify these ones:

    when  is the negative of

    x-y
    ---- = -1
    -x+y

    the answer should be -1.

    Aren't these supposed to be easier for Qalculate considering that it factorizes and simplifies things a lot harder than this one?

    I think you should add this as well.

    Anyway, Qalcuate is awesome.

    Victor.

    Heh heh, actually it does return a '-1', but I have to just simplify the fraction a bit, treating the negative sign in the numerator as part of another fraction:

    −1⋅1^−1(−x−y)(−x−y)^−1    

    Thanks for Qalculate.
