Manipulating an equation to isolate a term (not solve for a variable)

Consider the following minimal example of my problem:

eq = (a^2 + a == b^2) 

I would like to manipulate this equation to achieve:

a == b^2 - a^2 

First, note the obvious point that solving for a in this context is not appropriate as

Solve[eq, a] 

solves the quadratic equation, which is not my goal.

Alternatively, there are rather straightforward ways by which one can rearrange this equation by hand, for example:

AddSides[eq, -a^2] 

But that requires "human insight" and is awkward indeed for my full problem (where there are many terms on both sides of the equation).

For obvious and analogous reasons, Gather does not solve this problem either.

One can go in by hand and identify the desired term and manipulate the equation, basically by hand but that is of little help.

My presenting case is an enormous reduced equation in many variables that contains (say) a single a amidst many terms on the left. I’m seeking the simplest way to compute an equation of the form a == ......... which may (indeed does) contain nonlinear terms involving a on the right. I’m seeking the re-arranged equation so I can perform additional manipulations (with other equations and such).


Google Analytics lowercase filter for Campaign Term did not change my data. Why?

Universal Analytics sent a notification "Property XXXX is receiving hits with utm_term parameters of the same text but different letter cases" (e.g. MY term, my term, My Term) and proposed to set up a lowercase filter for Campaign Term, which I did.

lowercase filter Campaign Term

After one week, the Keyword column in Paid Keyword view keeps showing a couple of lines with mixed cases.

enter image description here

Moreover, if in the All Campaigns you select Keyword as a Primary Dimension it shows many more mixed cases words that came from some non-paid campaigns

enter image description here

I checked actual URLs in BigQuery. All these words that appear in the Keyword column do come as utm_term parameters.

Why did not Campaign Term lowercase filter change my data?

Different number posts per page based on custom post type term id

Trying to cobble together a function from various suggestions that sets the number of posts per page based on the custom post type category in question. For instance, an "Alphabetical" category contains 3500+ posts, so I want pagination, but a child category "A" contains 100 posts and I want to show them all without pagination. The term_id for "A" is 1858, for "Alphabetical" is 1853. Can I check for specific term ids in a conditional? Not like this of course, which was just guessing…

add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'limit_change_posts_archive'); function limit_change_posts_archive($  query){     if ( is_archive && is_tax( 'pdsh_categories' ) && is_term( 1858 ) {     $  query->set('posts_per_page', -1); } return $  query; 

get term id from term name

Hi i am trying to get term id from term name (title ).

 <?php     if ($  _SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "GET") {         // collect value of input field      $  nameb = $  _GET['fname2'];      $  namea = $  _GET['fname']; }  // $  nameb = Dolce+Gabana ;  // $  namea = Nike+Company;           ?> 

in above code php varibales equal to term name. But how can I get term id from term names. I use custom taxonomy

Is “Willingly” an actual game term? [duplicate]

Booming Blade says the following:

If the target willingly moves 5 feet or more before (the start of your next turn), the target takes 1d8 thunder damage, and the spell ends.

Is “willingly” an actual game term? Or is it just meant to be taken for the obvious meaning, that being compelled to move magically, or being shoved doesn’t count?

What are some other examples of “Willingly” being used in D&D?

What is a “game term”?

These two questions use the phrase "game term":

  • Is “a special melee attack” an actual game term?
  • What does ‘ally’ mean, as a game term?

Both answers seem to make a distinction between game terms and regular English, but what exactly does it mean for a word or phrase to be a "game term"?

Note, there are many other examples of Q&As that make this distinction, see these search results for more.

Is “a special melee attack” an actual game term?

PHB page 195 mentions "special melee attack" when talking about Grapple and Shove:

you can make a special melee attack to shove a creature

you can use the Attack action to make a special melee attack, a grapple

It uses words "make a special melee attack" like it is a thing in 5e, however, nowhere in the game text it’s being said what a "special melee attack" actually is. It isn’t even mentioned anymore. I believe that "special attack" is not a game term — it’s a vestige from the previous editions, where "special attacks" was a thing, but I could be mistaken.

Are there any other examples of "special melee attack" (or just "special attack") in any official source book for 5e?

I was searching through dndbeyond and the only thing I’ve found was Sword Of Answering. But it uses words "special attack" in the context of the magic item description:

while you hold the sword, you can use your reaction to make one melee attack

any damage dealt with this special attack ignores any damage immunity or resistance the target has

You can remove the word "special" from its description and nothing changes. So it is plain English meaning here, not the game term.

So what is a "special attack" in terms of the game mechanics?

Add term of current custom post type to admin body class using admin_body_class

I am trying to add the current custom post type term to the body class of my WordPress admin page. So when I am viewing an existing custom post type that has been assigned a term it will add that term to the body class.

I have found the following code but cannot get it to work for me:

add_filter( 'admin_body_class', 'rw_admin_body_class' ); function rw_admin_body_class( $  classes ) {     if ( 'post' != $  screen->base )         return $  classes;      global $  post;     $  terms = wp_get_post_terms( $  post->ID, 'product_cat', array( 'fields' => 'all' ) );     $  terms = wp_list_pluck( $  terms, 'slug' );     foreach ( $  terms as $  term )     {         $  classes .= ' my_taxonomy-' . $  term;     }      return $  classes; } 

Any pointers on how to get this working?
