show all the steps in the solution of a specified problem
(optional) posint or a calculus1 problem; the problem to solve
(optional) options of the form keyword=value, where keyword is one of showrules, maxsteps, searchoptimal.
The ShowSolution command is used to show the solution steps for a Calculus1 problem, that is, a limit, differentiation or integration problem such as can be expected to be encountered in a single-variable calculus course.
If p is omitted, the current (most recently referenced) problem is solved. Otherwise, the problem referenced by p is solved. A problem can be referenced either by its problem number (see GetProblem and ShowIncomplete) or by the problem itself, for example via a label.
The options can be used to control how the problem is solved and what is displayed. The options are:
showrules = truefalse (default: true)
Normally, the rule applied at each step of the solution is displayed; if this option is given as showrules=false, the rules are not shown.
maxsteps = posint (default: 25)
This puts a limit on the number of rules which can be applied to solve a problem.
searchoptimal = truefalse (default: true)
The default behavior is to try to determine the shortest solution sequence. If this option is given as searchoptimal = false, the first solution discovered will be displayed.
If you set infolevel[Student] := 1 or infolevel[Student[Calculus1]] := 1 (see infolevel), Maple may display some additional, useful information about the state of the problem and its solution.
