    Simplifying fractions.

    Can you simplify these easy fractions:

    \frac{a}{4b^2}

    \frac{b}{5c}

    \frac{x}{x^2-25}

    The opposite of simplify is to complicate. Why would you want to complicate these expressions?

    What are the original questions that led you to these expressions?

    Well then you can just be creative.

    \frac{a}{4b^2}=\frac{20ababababa}{80abababab^3}

    Heh.
