information about contributing material, visit the FAQ on contributing.

There are currently a number of entries in *MathWorld* that are either incomplete or in the process of being modified. A
complete listing of entries "under construction" is also kept up-to-date, as is a list of
entries missing specific pieces of information, and
entries containing out-of-date hyperlinks. Help in fleshing out these

- For calculus help, calc101.com provides step-by-step answers.
- For other homework help, please see our FAQ.

- We are regrettably not able to respond to questions of the form "
**Is formula**" Almost always, the answer is "yes." If you have checked a formula yourself and have cogent reason to believe that it contains a typo, please send us a typo report stating, if possible, why the current formula is wrong and what changes are needed to correct it.*x*correct?
