    Simplifying Equation

    4a^4m^2c^2=4a^2(b^2c^2-b^4+a^2m^2c^2-a^2m^2b^2)

    How can this be simplified to give c^2= b^2+a^2m^2?

    First of all simplify by 4a^2:
    a^2m^2c^2=b^2c^2-b^4+a^2m^2c^2-a^2m^2b^2\Rightarrow b^2c^2=b^4+a^2m^2b^2
    Now, simplify by b^2 and you'll get the result.
