[prMac.com] McLean, Virginia - Radius Development today is pleased to announce the availability of AP Algebra Helper on the App Store. AP Algebra Helper provides intuitive insight, quick solutions, and clear interactive visualizations of common algebraic equations. Linear, quadratic polynomial, quadratic factored, and dual linear sets can all be solved (for any independent parameter) and plotted with this unique mathematical accelerator.
In the solver screen the coefficients (e.g. y, m, x, and b for linear equations) are each individually adjustable with quick action sliders as well as text entry. A lock button on each allows any one of the four to be selected as the dependent parameter (that is, the one that is to be solved). A quick example: Jim is selling popcorn. His popper costs $20 and each batch that he makes takes $3 worth of materials. How much will it cost him to make 25 batches? Selecting y for cost as the dependent parameter, set m to 3, x to 25, and b to 20 to solve: cost = 3 * 25 + 20. Moving the sliders for m, x, and b around will show how the cost changes with number of batches, cost per batch, or cost of the popper.
To show the solution graphically, just hit the graph button on top and the current settings will be used in a plot on the flip side. Further adjustments can be made to the equation using a simplified interface. Here, any parameter can be adjusted but they will all solve for y as the dependent parameter (except for changing y which uses x as the dependent parameter).
