We’re excited to introduce some brand new features to our step-by-step functionality! Wolfram|Alpha can now guide you through factoring polynomials and completing the square, in addition to being updated to include FOIL and the binomial expansion theorem. Let’s take a look.
How about factor x^4 + x^2 + 1:
Looking at completing the square, three methods are offered! Let’s try complete the square x^2 + 2x + 3:
Perhaps we’d like the center of a circle:
Lastly, let’s take a look at our updated expansion steps.
How about expand (x^2 + x + 1)(x^2 – x + 1)(x – 3):
Stay tuned for more step-by-step functionality releases very soon!
