# What Is The Math Website That Solves Problems

Wolfram|Alpha shows how to solve this equation by completing the square and then solving for Wolfram|Alpha can demonstrate step-by-step solutions over a wide range of problems.

This functionality will be expanded to include steps for solutions in other mathematical areas.

The equations I tend to use it for, usually says (step-by-step results unavailable’ anyway this feature is awesome, and I use it quite a lot to aid my learning. I wish I had this feature few years ago while studying at University.

I was solving a lot of math helping other students and raising my wellfare, and this feature would be dramatically useful.

It would be amazing to figure out where I made my mistake I have been using the “show steps” and it was working perfectly until a few days ago.

I too have been trying to take derivatives and the answers are correct, but it will not display the steps (I also have the i Pod app and the same problem is happening there.

Although I see that for some maths the site is now showing the steps again I cannot get the show steps for 2nd order ODE’s such as: 2y” y’ 3y = x^2 6 What would I need to type in to get the steps, or do they simply not show for this type of maths, or is the maths still not 100% working! When I enter integrate (3^x)/(4-9^x)dx, I cannot see the steps.

I just wanted to say, i’ve been with Wolfram alpha since the day it went public back in may 2009, and i have to say this site has helped me more though my advanced math classes than any calculator, textbook or teacher ever could. this would be helpful because I also did it by hand and I got a different answer (the one given from Wolfram is correct). Is there somewhere where we can check what functions have full or partial “step-by-step” functionality? And is there any step-by-step functionality in the algebra section?

(Please keep it that way…) This is mostly curiosity, but why is there now a post about this feature?

Hi To obtain the logarithm with a fraction as base you have to write the base without the 0 before the decimal point: Log .5 of (x^2 2x) To obtain a logarithm in base 1/2 Hope it helps, it sure took me a while :) Greets and thanks to the people behind WA!

If you try to solve a limit, but the left-handed limit and the right-handed limit are not the same, Wolfram Alpha gives both one-sided limits, but the “show steps” button doesn’t appear. Or to request only one of the one-sided limits and have the button appear? How could I input this equation to get a step by step process to solve this difference quotient? But wolfram simply spit back the equation back at me, not the solution.

Let’s try (–1): The step-by-step programs in Wolfram|Alpha rely on a combination of basic algorithms and heuristics including Gaussian elimination, l’Hôpital’s rule, and Bernoulli’s algorithm for rational integration.

These heuristics are a logical formulation of the natural methods used by humans for solving problems.

Thanks to various myths and misconceptions about the syndrome, the virus spread like wildfire and infected millions of people before it could be contained.
