Just take a look how incredibly simple Algebra Helper is:

Step 1 : Enter your homework problem in an easy WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) algebra editor:

Step 2 : Let Algebra Helper solve it:

Step 3 : Ask for an explanation for the steps you don't understand:

Algebra Helper can solve problems in all the following areas:

• simplification of algebraic expressions (operations with polynomials (simplifying, degree, synthetic division...), exponential expressions, fractions and roots (radicals), absolute values)
• factoring and expanding expressions
• finding LCM and GCF
• (simplifying, rationalizing complex denominators...)
• solving linear, quadratic and many other equations and inequalities (including basic logarithmic and exponential equations)
• solving a system of two and three linear equations (including Cramer's rule)
• graphing curves (lines, parabolas, hyperbolas, circles, ellipses, equation and inequality solutions)
• graphing general functions
• operations with functions (composition, inverse, range, domain...)
• simplifying logarithms
• basic geometry and trigonometry (similarity, calculating trig functions, right triangle...)
• arithmetic and other pre-algebra topics (ratios, proportions, measurements...)
