polynomials in expressions

Posted 9 years ago

Hi all.

In an expression, Mathematica puts the variables after a constant. ie. -1 + x or -6 + x^2.

How can I change the setting so that the default expression has the variables in front of the constant? Ie. x - 1, X^2 - 6, X^3 - X^2 +6x - 6?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can do it in the preferences.

Thanks for your reply.

Is there a way to set Mathematica's output to be in TraditionalForm by default?

This is how Mathematica is formatting it's output on my computer:

TraditionalForm should do that:

TraditionalForm[-1 + x ]

Otherwise, select a whole cell with polynomials in it and then to to the menu Cell > Convert To > TraditionalForm.
