(There are times when I have to re-type my question because I’ve moved on and then decided to take another look at it.) Also, I wish W/A could compute answer for the Trapezoidal Rule without a condition. Should they solve the equation manually, or just put it inti Wolfram|Alpha? I tried tanx/x without limits and as x approaches 0 and result BING. Hey Doing some math and using Alpha to check my answers, its fine when they are correct but when they aren’t I cant check the correct calculations like you show here in this step by step post. for example, derivative of ((sin x)^-5)-((cos x)^3).
(None of my math problems for Trapezoidal Rule ever have conditions. I am just so impressed, mathematics happen to be my favorite subject and i think i am going to spend my free time here. i used wolfram alpha to solve this and many other problems a few days ago and it showed the steps just fine but now it won’t.
Have you ever given up working on a math problem because you couldn’t figure out the next step?
Wolfram|Alpha can guide you step by step through the process of solving many mathematical problems, from solving a simple quadratic equation to taking the integral of a complex function.
When trying to find the roots of 3, Wolfram|Alpha can break down the steps for you if you click the “Show steps” button in the Result pod.
As you can see, Wolfram|Alpha can find the roots of quadratic equations.Visit the Wolfram|Alpha Homework Day Gallery for examples of how you can use Wolfram|Alpha as a learning tool for other subjects. I would like to see the interface enhanced so I could enter several math problems at once (for example: Chapter 7, problems 1-19 (odd)) and have the output in a printable / customizable format (ie a script font that looks like my handwriting). Thanks :) That would be really sweet, but that would require going through all the textbooks in all the high schools of the country and it recognizing where you are to base your school district and analyzing the textbook that that district uses. They were amused because it is inefficient: it equates to zero first and then isolates the variable.(Please keep it that way…) This is mostly curiosity, but why is there now a post about this feature?Look through the following examples to see the abilities of the “Show steps” functionality.If you need to learn how to do long division of polynomials, Wolfram|Alpha can show you the steps.They only ever give me the equation and say “with n = 8”. Next i tried TNT, it gives options as a finance entity, chemical compound so i choose chemical compound and i get the forumula, structure, IUPAC name and properties. Just want to ask are those values fed in database or calculated in real time and then cached. What a informative post Step-by-Step Math in wolfram alpha blog. wondering what’s going on thanks When I enter y” 4y=(x^2-3)sin(2x), I cannot see the steps.Can you solve this; Ten not necessarily distinct positive integers have the property that if all but one are added, the positive results are 82, 83, 84, 85, 87, 89, 90, and 92. David What a informative post Step-by-Step Math in wolfram alpha blog. this would be helpful because I also did it by hand and I got a different answer (the one given from Wolfram is correct).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.An example I’ve tried is: y = (x-3)/(4x 2) I haven’t been able to get any of the “show steps” to work for derivatives.I have tried using different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and IE7) tried adding and removing add blocking software.
