cancel function
Posted:

I cannot seem to get mathematica to cancel the exponetial function in the following relationship;
in(1) = eqn1 = a E^(I w t )(b + c x) == 0 out(1)= a E^(I w t ) (b + c x) == 0
in(2) = eqnw = Cancel[eqn1/E^(I w t )] out(2) = E^(I w t )( a E^(I w t )(b + c x) == 0)
I seem to think that cancel should reduce above to:
out(2) = eqnw = (b + c x) == 0
any help would be appreciated.
