Re: [isabelle] yet another simplifier question

Sledgehammer is a very complicated subsystem of Isabelle, which attempts to prove subgoals using external provers. It is often successful, but of course, many problems are too difficult for it.

Your first problem looks like it would be quite easy if you call the simplifier using divide_simps (and donât forget to include your assumption a>0).

And yes, you definitely need to use a recent version of Isabelle. I suggest that you download the release candidate, <>.
