We are inundated with complex information every day, from evolving technologies to complicated relationships. News, information, and opinions are readily available at our fingertips. There are endless options for how, where, and from whom to get them. Wading through the sea of information can be exhausting.
Now, more than ever, learning to simplify complex systems is essential. The increasing complexity of our lives is taking a toll on our mental health, calendars, and personal and professional growth. Many obstacles stand in our way as self-learners on the road to knowledge.
Before we dive deeper, let's clarify two key terms: complexity and simplicity. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, complexity is "the state of having many parts and being difficult to understand or find an answer to." It defines simplicity as "the fact that something is easy to understand or do."
By focusing intently on a single, solvable step at a time, the Feynman Technique works to simplify complex ideas. When you use this method of learning to break down a task into its simplest forms, your creativity becomes uninhibited and you gain both understanding of the topic and retention of the new concept.
Presenting complex information is the most challenging type of communication. In a world where information grows with unprecedented speed, expertise becomes more nuanced. We end up knowing our fields deeply, but communicating our expertise to a general audience becomes ever harder. Being able to simplify, without dumbing down, will set a communicator apart as someone to listen to. Honing this skill takes time but is well worth the investment.
Resisting quick fixes, company leaders took a hard look at their operating model. The organization had become complicated, with weak cooperation among business segments in both sales and engineering and duplication of work in business segments and headquarters. Employees, who were frustrated by the bureaucratic burden of complex structures and processes, focused almost exclusively on executing well within their particular unit, refraining from cooperating across silos. Company leaders determined that it was time to simplify the organization, get rid of noncore activities, and make it clear that cooperation would be the winning behavior.
Smart Start. The first step is the identification of the performance issues and the symptoms of complicatedness. A company should not simplify itself only for the sake of simplifying. Simplification is for companies that aim to tackle concrete performance gaps currently caused by complicatedness. The performance issues need to be measurable, and the benefit of addressing the problems should be clear, quantifiable, and worth the energy expended.
and There are two ways that you can simplify complex fractions. We will call them method I and method II. Method I Simplifying a Complex Fraction Step 1: If needed, rewrite the numerator and denominator so that they are each a single fraction. In other words, you will be combining all the parts of the numerator to form one fraction and all of the parts of the denominator to form another fraction. If you need a review on adding and subtracting rational expressions, go to Tutorial 10: Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions.
Combining only the denominator we get: *Rewrite fractions with LCD of a^2 b Putting these back into the complex fraction we get: *Write numerator over denominator Step 2: Divide the numerator by the denominator AND Step 3: If needed, simplify the rational expression. *Rewrite div. as mult. of reciprocal *Divide out a common factor of ab *Excluded values of the original den. Note that the value that would be excluded from the domain is 0. This is the value that makes the original denominator equal to 0. Example 2: Simplify .
Combining only the denominator we get: *Rewrite fractions with LCD of (x - 4) Putting these back into the complex fraction we get: *Write numerator over denominator Step 2: Divide the numerator by the denominator AND Step 3: If needed, simplify the rational expression. *Rewrite div. as mult. of reciprocal *Divide out a common factor of (x - 4) *Excluded values of the original den. Note that the values that would be excluded from the domain are 4 and 16/5. These are the values that make the original denominators equal to 0. Method II Simplifying a Complex Fraction Step 1: Multiply the numerator and denominator of the overall complex fractions by the LCD of the smaller fractions. Recall that when you multiply the exact same thing to the numerator and the denominator, the result is an equivalent fraction. If you need a review on finding the LCD, go back to Tutorial 10: Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions. Step 2: If needed, simplify the rational expression.
This calculator will show you how to simplify complex fractions. Input any 2 mixed numbers (mixed fractions), regular fractions, improper fraction or integers and simplify the entire fraction by each of the following methods.
Conclusion: In everyday clinical practice, switching from low-dose MDI to IDegLira in patients with well-controlled type 2 diabetes is safe, may result in weight loss and similar or better glycemic control, and substantially reduces the insulin requirement. Simplifying complex treatment regimens decreases treatment burden and may improve adherence to therapy.
Researchers can study complex developmental phenomena with all the inherent noise and complexity or simplify behaviors to hone in on the essential aspects of a phenomenon. We used the development of walking as a model system to compare the costs and benefits of simplifying a complex, noisy behavior. Traditionally, researchers simplify infant walking by recording gait measures as infants take continuous, forward steps along straight paths. Here, we compared the traditional straight-path task with spontaneous walking during 20 minutes of free play in 97 infants (10.75-19.99 months of age). We recorded infants' footfalls on an instrumented floor to calculate gait measures in the straight-path and free-play tasks. In addition, we scored videos for other critical aspects of spontaneous walking-steps per bout, shape of walking path, and step direction. Studying infant walking during free play incurred no cost compared with the straight-path task, but considerable benefits. Straight-path gait was highly correlated with spontaneous gait and both sets of measures improved with walking age, validating use of the straight-path task as an index of development. However, a large proportion of free-play bouts were too short to permit standard gait measures, and most bouts were curved with omnidirectional steps. The high prevalence of these "non-canonical" bouts was constant over development. We propose that a focus on spontaneous walking, the phenomenon we ostensibly wish to explain, yields important insights into the problems infants solve while learning to walk. Other areas of developmental research may also benefit from retaining the complexity of complex phenomena.
My hope is that by understanding the right techniques and approaches, we can do our jobs better. We can provide more value in our roles. As we simplify complexity in deep ways, we can move beyond merely being perceived as editors, writers, or publishers. We become knowledge creators and usability experts in information spaces.

Using direct quotes will naturally garner stronger reactions and offer quicker insight, but make sure to choose a simple quote from the reference that lacks its own complexity of jargon and/or complicated words.
There are two methods that can be used to simplify complex fractions. To simplify a complex fraction means to write the expression without a fraction in its numerator and/or its denominator.
To me, this is what simplifying a complex scene is all about-narrowing down on the essence of the scene and cutting out the rest. Much like a great writer uses fewer words to say more, whilst amateur writers try to overwhelm you with words.
The effectiveness of generalizing disease-specific interventions for patients with comorbidities to the broader population of patients with a range of multiple morbidities will depend on the outcomes assessed. For complex patients with symptomatic depression, it is unlikely that any health outcomes will improve without active management of the depression. Based on the Lin et al, Bogner et al, and Morris et al articles, depression management should include active care management, incorporating medication adherence and treatment intensification strategies, broad self-management support, and enhanced communication with patients and between patients and the other members of the care team. 2b1af7f3a8
