How do you show each step that Mathematica uses on the functions Solve or Expand without using the Trace function as shown below? Is there a free package available? (*SolveStep is being used just as an example function even though it does not exist*) SolveStep[a x^2+b x+c==0,x]; (*Would output something like the derivation of the quadratic formula*) Thanks, Alan
