Calculator is able to expand an algebraic expression online.

expand online

In mathematics, to **expand an expression** or to **expand a product**
that is transformed into algebraic sum. This **calculator allows to expand** all forms of **algebraic
expressions online**, it also helps to calculate special expansions online (the difference of squares,
the identitiy for the square of a sum and the identity for the square of a difference).
For simple expansions, the calculator gives the calculation steps.

the function allows to expand online all forms of mathematical expressions, the expression can be alphanumeric, ie it can contain numbers and letters :

- Expand the following product (3 x+ 1) (2 x+ 4) `(3x+1)(2x+4)` returns `3*x*2*x+3*x*4+2*x+4`
- Expand this algebraic expression `(x+2)^3` returns `2^3+3*x*2^2+3*2*x^2+x^3`

The function expand makes it possible to **expand a product**, it applies to all mathematical expressions,
especially the following identities :

- the identitiy for the square of a sum : It allows to expand online expressions of the form `(a+b)^2`
- the identity for the square of a difference : It allows to expand online expressions of the form `(a-b)^2`
- the difference of squares : It allows to expand online expressions of the form `(a-b)(a+b)`

**Newton's binomial formula** is written : `(a+b)^n=sum_(k=0)^{n} ((n),(k)) a^k*b^(n-k)`.
The numbers `((n),(k))` are the binomial coefficients,
they are calculated using the following formula : `((n),(k))=(n!)/(k!(n-k)!)`.

We note, that by replacing n by 2, we can find remarkable identities.

The calculator uses Newton's formula to develop expressions of the form `(a+b)^n`.

The calculator allows you to expand and collapse an expression online,
to achieve this, the calculator combines the functions collapse and expand.
For example it is possible to expand and reduce
the **expression** following `(3x+1)(2x+4)`, The calculator will returns the expression in two forms :

- expanded expression `3*x*2*x+3*x*4+2*x+4`
- expanded and reduced expression `4+14*x+6*x^2`.

Calculator is able to expand an algebraic expression online.

- expand(`(3+4)*2`) returns 3*2+4*2
- expand(`x*(x+2)`) returns x*x +x*2
- expand(`(x+3)^2`) returns `3^2+2*3*x+x^2`
