Function: factrix - take out common scalar factors from a matrix or vector
M - a Matrix, Vector, matrix, vector, list or listlist, or an expression that evaluates to one of these under evalm .
Note that evaluating this result puts the constant factor 3/28 back into the Matrix.
But using convert(..., list) we can separate the factors.
A purely numeric factor can't be taken out of a list:
But it would work for a vector:
Some more complicated factors:
Removing a floating-point factor:
However, 4.6 and 2.3 are not recognized as related.
Try converting to rational first:
