Hi guys, I've used google and Maxima's manual but couldn't find what I'm looking for.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have defined a function similar to, and another functionCode (Text):Z(beta):=beta+3;and I am not able to "simplify" P(beta) as beta+7/(beta+3).Code (Text):P(beta):=beta+7/Z;

I've tried several commands but all failed. I even tried to define,Code (Text):P(beta):=beta+7/%o1;,Code (Text):P(beta,Z):=beta+7/Z;andCode (Text):P(beta,Z(beta)):=beta+7/Z(beta);; all failed.Code (Text):P(beta,Z):=beta+7/Z(beta);

Any idea on how I could reach my goal?
