I'm someone who is horrible at math and can't do it to save my life. I'm getting desperate. I want to find a good math website that will give me all the answers to any Math equations. I'm only doing algebra so there should be sites out there. If anyone knows any good math websites that not only gives all the answers to the problems but shows ALL the work you have to do to solve them.

I've posted on here about this before, but I work for Brainfuse.com. You get an individual on-line tutor that can show you, step by step, how to do each algebra problem and let you know if you get the correct answer or not. They won't do the work for you though.

I'm not a math tutor. I work in the writing lab. Still, there are excellent, qualified algebra tutors that work with us.

I would recommend more to buy a good mathematical handbook. My recommendation is Bronshtein, Handbook of Mathematics:

http://www.amazon.com/Handbook-Mathemat ... 3540434917

You will never need to buy a general handbook of mathematics in your live again!

Buy or borrow one of the items in Schaum's Outline Series. They are inexpensive (15 dollar range) and they feature worked out problems. Just what you need.

So there basically aren't any websites where I can simply type an equation in and it shows me all the work and answers? Why can't it be that easy?

I like to use

http://www.algebrahelp.com/calculators/ ... factoring/ to factor equations, even though I'm far past algebra by now.

What type of problem do you need help on?

If I recall correctly, at least 4/5 of the stuff you do in algebra is calculable on a graphing calculator.

QuickMath Automatic Solutions works nicely for systems of equations. I remember recently running across a website that did what you wanted (step by step examples)... it had a high Google rank. Maybe I was searching for a quadratic equation solver?

Algebra.com has a nifty setup too. They seem to even generate animated gifs.

Stephen Wolfram's sites are second to none.

Why one that shows all work? If you're looking to cheat on college work, I won't support that. Ask about free tutoring services if you're a student.
