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.
(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.
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.
