If x is the sum a + b, then `nterms(x)' must be `nterms(a)' plus `nterms(b)'. If x is not a sum, then `nterms(x)' = 1.
[ nterms(a + b) := nterms(a) + nterms(b), nterms(x) := 1 ] |
Here we have taken advantage of the fact that earlier rules always match before later rules; `nterms(x)' will only be tried if we already know that `x' is not a sum.
