There is a linear and nonlinear system of equations. The latter being a set of simultaneous equations whereby the unknowns appear as variables of a polynomial of degree higher than one in the argument of a function which isn’t a polynomial of degree one. Nonlinear equations are not always easy to deal with. Quadratic equations are examples of nonlinear equations. In short, a system of equations is a set of equations that are dealt with all together at a go.

Since solving these equations isn’t always a walk in the park, some guys decided to come up with a desktop application that simplifies them. They are called softmath, and they are based in the US. They called that app “Algebrator”.

How does algebrator work?

First of all, it can be downloaded through the link that is provided on their webpage softmath.com. As of now, its cost is roughly ten bucks. But, that is bound to change in the next few hours. So if you feel like purchasing it after paying attention to what it does, I would advise you to do that sooner rather than later.

Now, let us dive deep into Algebrator. This solution tackles problems from many math textbooks. It tackles those that are in Trigonometry, Statistics, Pre-Algebra, and College Algebra. Imagine it can solve problems from the following topics; complex numbers, graphing, trigonometry, equations, and inequalities, logarithms, functions, math expressions to name but few. Is that not great? I bet it is.

The app allows the use of wizards interface or WYSIYWG interface (an acronym of What You See Is What You Get interface) to enter problems like “Find a perpendicular line that passes the (x, y) coordinates”.

With this app, you can ask for the explanation of something if you did not get how it arrived at that place. Just like how the teacher shows his or her steps while calculating something, this application will do the same too. That way, it makes sure that you have understood how it some things are done.

When you get the solution, you can export it in MathML format. If you do not mind, you can go ahead and share that solution with your friends or classmates or even everyone. The application has an export function which generates xhtml files which can be easily opened in web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Opera and many more.

Who can install this application?

As of now, the app can be installed on Windows PCs or Mac OS laptops.

Do they provide customer support service?

Yes, they do. Softmath provides customer services every week day from 8 o’clock in the morning to 9 o’clock in the evening. They can also be reached through the phone call using the number that they have indicated in their webpage.

If you prefer having a one on one talk, you can get them at their office which is located along Blanco Road in the city of San Antonio in the State of Texas.
