MATHOMATIC

ALGEBRAIC EQUATION

PROCESSOR

(IBM only)

If "A = B + C", then what does "B" equal? MATHOMATIC is a super-smart

calculator program that can solve complicated symbolic math equations.

Enter your equation or formula and solve it for any variable, and if you

want to plug in values, simply type the "calculate" command and MATHOMATIC

will ask you for the values of all variables on the right-hand side of the

equation.

MATHOMATIC is an artificially intelligent algebraic manipulator program

which implements most of the rules of algebra for the mathematical operators

+, -, *, /, and power (including roots). Any equation can be automatically

solved for any unknown, except for some polynomials of the third degree (cubic)

and higher. Unlike other equation solvers which approximate a numerical

solution for an unknown by prompting for the values of all the other variables

in an equation, MATHOMATIC actually solves the equation by algebraically

manipulating and simplifying the equation until all of the symbolic solutions

for the unknown are determined.

You can simplify (reduce) equations, differentiate equations, compare

equations, replace variables with any expression, jiggle a variable about

some value to see the sensitivity to that value, etc. In addition,

simultaneous algebraic equations can be easily combined and solved for any

variable. Complex number arithmetic is supported, too.

MATHOMATIC is a fascinating tool. By using MATHOMATIC, you will learn to

convert word problems to algebraic equations and let MATHOMATIC do the rest.

Math enthusiasts will love to watch MATHOMATIC manipulate complicated

equations.

MATHOMATIC includes a tutorial program and a little surprise for anyone

with a color computer: each level of parentheses can be a different color.

Requires 512K of RAM and MS-DOS or PC-DOS 2.0 or higher.

Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
