Previous: Raising polynomials to some power
| Next: Factor a polynomial
If you've done the other lessons in this section, hopefully you've seen how
the computer can do symbolic math.
In this lesson, let's write a simple computer algebra system, that asks you
for an expression, then simplifies it for you.
Now you try. Try typing in just about any expression you can find in your algebra book, and see what you get.
Type your code here:
This example will simplify the problem you type into the text box when the code is run.
