# Problem types supported by Math Assistant

When you use Math Assistant in OneNote, you'll notice that the Select an action dropdown beneath the equation changes depending on your selected equation. Here are some of the problem types supported depending on the equation you're trying to solve.

Note: This feature is only available if you have an Office 365 subscription. If you are an Office 365 subscriber, make sure you have the latest version of Office.

 Arrays For a list of real numbers, all of the below are supported.   Evaluate Sort Mean Median Mode Sum Product Greatest Common Factor Least Common Multiple Variance Standard Deviation Minima Maxima For polynomials, the supported actions are Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple. You can also choose to Graph in 2D to view the graphs of all your functions. For any expression, the available actions are: Evaluate Verify Expand (if applicable) Factor (if applicable) Graph in 2D (only available if there is a variable) Differentiate (only available if there is a variable) Integrate (only available if there is a variable) For equations and inequalities, the following actions are available: Solve for {your variable} Graph Both Sides in 2D — Each of the sides of the equality or inequality is graphed as a separate function. Graph in 2D — A graph of the equation or inequality solutions Graph Inequality — Marks the solution area on the graph It is important to have an equal number of equations and variables to ensure the correct functions are available. Systems can be written in two different ways:  One below another, with or without a big brace before them In one line divided by a comma Derivatives can be written either with d/dx before the function, or with a prime mark. The actions available for derivatives and integrals are: Evaluate Graph in 2D Differentiate Integrate (for derivatives only) Matrices can be written with square or round brackets. The following actions are supported for matrices: Evaluate Calculate Determinant Invert Matrix Calculate Trace Transpose Matrix Matrix Size Reduce Matrix Matrix equations are not currently supported. To graph a function in polar coordinates, r needs to be expressed as a function of theta. Note: Select Settings to switch between real numbers and complex numbers. For complex expressions and numbers containing imaginary unit i, the following actions are available. Evaluate Real Part Imaginary Part Conjugate Modulus Argument Differentiate (only if there is a variable) Integrate (only if there is a variable)
