## Question:simplifying an expression

Maple 2019

Hey,

Is anyone of you capable of simplifying this expression

f1:=(-3*sin(8*x) + 3*sin(8*x + 2*y) - 3*sin(8*x + 6*y) + 3*sin(8*y + 8*x) + 3*sin(8*y + 6*x) + 3*sin(8*y) - 18*sin(8*y + 4*x) + 3*sin(8*y + 2*x) - 45*sin(6*y + 6*x) + 87*sin(4*y + 6*x) - 3*sin(6*x - 2*y) - 87*sin(6*x + 2*y) + 18*sin(4*x - 4*y) - 93*sin(4*x + 4*y) + 93*sin(4*x + 6*y) - 51*sin(2*x - 4*y) - 342*sin(2*x + 4*y) - 3*sin(-6*y + 2*x) + 51*sin(6*y + 2*x) - 93*sin(-2*y + 4*x) + 342*sin(-2*y + 2*x) + 639*sin(2*x + 2*y) - 639*sin(2*x) + 45*sin(6*x) + 93*sin(4*x) + 231*sin(4*y) - 225*sin(2*y) - 63*sin(6*y) - 57*sqrt(3)*cos(2*x) - 375*sqrt(3)*cos(2*y) + sqrt(3)*cos(8*y + 8*x) - 5*sqrt(3)*cos(8*x + 6*y) - 7*sqrt(3)*cos(8*y + 6*x) + sqrt(3)*cos(8*x) + 192*sqrt(3)*cos(2*y + 4*x) + 43*sqrt(3)*cos(-2*y + 4*x) - 7*sqrt(3)*cos(6*x + 2*y) + 7*sqrt(3)*cos(-6*y + 2*x) - 5*sqrt(3)*cos(6*y) - 149*sqrt(3)*cos(4*x + 4*y) - 149*sqrt(3)*cos(4*x) - 65*sqrt(3)*cos(6*y + 2*x) + 126*sqrt(3)*cos(2*x + 4*y) - 65*sqrt(3)*cos(2*x - 4*y) - 5*sqrt(3)*cos(8*x + 2*y) - sqrt(3)*cos(8*y) + 7*sqrt(3)*cos(8*y + 2*x) + 6*sqrt(3)*cos(8*x + 4*y) - 57*sqrt(3)*cos(2*x + 2*y) + 125*sqrt(3)*cos(4*y) + 126*sqrt(3)*cos(-2*y + 2*x) - 7*sqrt(3)*cos(6*x - 2*y) + 19*sqrt(3)*cos(6*x) + 43*sqrt(3)*cos(4*x + 6*y) + 19*sqrt(3)*cos(6*y + 6*x) - 7*sqrt(3)*cos(4*y + 6*x) + 246*sqrt(3))/(2*(-261*sin(4*x + y) - 297*sin(2*x + 3*y) - 48*sin(5*y + 6*x) + 126*sin(5*y + 2*x) + 9*sin(5*y + 8*x) + 12*sin(7*y + 6*x) - 9*sin(7*y + 4*x) - 36*sin(5*y + 4*x) + 261*sin(3*y + 4*x) + 9*sin(-3*y + 4*x) + 297*sin(-y + 2*x) - 135*sin(3*y) - 21*sin(5*y) - 147*cos(y)*sqrt(3) - 9*sqrt(3)*cos(7*y + 4*x) - 3*sqrt(3)*cos(5*y + 8*x) - 3*sqrt(3)*cos(3*y + 8*x) + 54*sqrt(3)*cos(6*x + 3*y) + 5*sqrt(3)*cos(-5*y + 2*x) + 5*sqrt(3)*cos(7*y + 2*x) - 2*sqrt(3)*cos(6*x - y) - 20*sqrt(3)*cos(6*x + y) - 69*sqrt(3)*cos(4*x + y) + 68*sqrt(3)*cos(4*x - y) + 2*sqrt(3)*cos(8*x + y) + 2*sqrt(3)*cos(7*y + 8*x) - 20*sqrt(3)*cos(5*y + 6*x) - 2*sqrt(3)*cos(7*y + 6*x) + 68*sqrt(3)*cos(5*y + 4*x) - 9*sqrt(3)*cos(-3*y + 4*x) - 69*sqrt(3)*cos(3*y + 4*x) - 171*sqrt(3)*cos(2*x + 3*y) - 35*sqrt(3)*cos(5*y) + 171*sqrt(3)*cos(3*y) - 171*sqrt(3)*cos(-y + 2*x) + 354*sqrt(3)*cos(2*x + y) + sqrt(3)*cos(7*y) + 639*sin(y) - 9*sin(3*y + 8*x) - 12*sin(6*x - y) + 3*sin(7*y) - 9*sin(7*y + 2*x) + 9*sin(-5*y + 2*x) + 48*sin(6*x + y) + 36*sin(4*x - y) - 126*sin(2*x - 3*y)))

into

cos(y-Pi/3).

PS: Actually I managed by expanding the thing out and converting to exp then expanding again and using radnormal. In essence I leave the question, because maybe somebody can explain to me why radnormal seems to be superior (sometimes) to simplify which I thought of as the USEALL choice. Thanks
