Equation Solving
Algebraic equations consist of two mathematical quantities, such as polynomials, being equated to each other. Solving equations yields a solution for the independent variables, either symbolic or numeric. In addition to finding solutions to equations, Wolfram|Alpha also plots the equations and their solutions.
