I know the new and hip TI 89 calculators can do that, but I need a program that will combine these 'foiled' terms of a polynomial into a polynomial.

such as turning (x+2)(x+3) into x^2 + 5x + 6

The reason I'm asking is that I have probably a good 5 or 6 terms per problem with quite a few of them, and since this is a pretty arbitrary step in what I'm doing, I'd like to know if there are any programs on the internet that will do this for me? I did much googling, but wasn't finding much.

Thanks.

BlochWaveonHerschelonMost of the programs there are probably a bit heavyweight if that's going to be all you'll use them for, so you might as well just use the calculators others have listed, or google for "algebra calculator", "algebra solver", "algebra simplifier", etc.
