If I right-click again and choose Plot in 2D, I get:
If I’ve got an equation that I want to solve, I can enter it:
and then right-click and choose Solve for x and get all the possible solutions:
This even works if you have multiple equations with multiple unknowns, which means this is good through at least 8th grade Algebra. Wahoo!
