Hello, I just purchased Mathematica 4.1. I'm taking precalculus and wanted to try a tough factoring problem, since the teacher couldn't do it either. Mathematica get's the correct answer, but I'm interrested in seeing how it got there. Is there a way to turn on some sort of trace feature where it shows each step it used to get the the final result? Thanks! --Steven
