How to Symbolab Series

Mathematical series is a useful tool, from calculating lease payments to approximation of functions.  We’ll show you how to use Symbolab to solve, prove and most important understand series.

How to search for a series?  You can type in the elements, the sum or the equation (isn’t it great that we have ∑ on the pad?)

You can type in the series name, don’t worry, we will highlight the equation for you
 'taylor series' for instance...

If you want to specify what you are looking for you can also type in ‘solve’, ‘proof by induction’ or any textual description.  You can also add quantifiers or conditions

Last but not least you can refine the search results by the media of your choice.  If you are into video tutorials refine by Video, Khan Academy has some great videos on series…and yes, we search Khan Academy by equation as well!

Until next week,
