I note this question is going to close by the Mathematic question(not a Mathematica). I think it is a function of Mathematica to try or practice with MMA when learning Mathematic. We can't simply categorize this need as a purely mathematical problem and then ask to close it.

In this post, we can know the user is indeed trying to use MMA to solve math problems:

And he is a new user with only 1 score. I think it's cruel to close the post directly.

Last but no least, MMA programming is highly related to mathematical problems. We cannot ignore this, for example, all problems tagged on differential equations are essentially mathematical problems, but we do accept it.

  • I somehow agree with @Yode and voted to keep this question open. It is, after all, a direct question about Wolfram Mathematica. Not a very good one though, as it does not show due diligence, and it's hard to argue that this is a question anybody would want to curate for posterity.

    @rhermans I agree with you that the problem doesn't show user diligence, but don't close it as a math problem. This is after all different. I'm just saying it's not a math problem

    I think I'd characterize the issue differently. The question is not even appropriate for math.SE, which I think is easy to see. I can't explain the votes, though. They seem mistakes but not cruelty. I think math.SE would likely reject the migration. -- Characterizing something as a "math problem" is not the same as saying it belongs on math.SE, though it seems that's what you meant. We have lots of mathematics-problem tags, not just diff. eq. And the first book on Mathematica was called Mathematica: A System for Doing Mathematics by Computer.
