Web Math
This site is a commercial site (will contain advertisements). It is both a tutorial (showing how to do a type of problem) and a place to enter a problem you can't solve. It will solve the problem, explaining all the steps. Covers Algebra and below. Also allows you to download a demo copy of their PC software. If you like it, you can order the software to have on your PC and use without going on the Web ($29.99).

Ask Dr. Math
This in non-commercial site created and maintained by Swarthmore College. You can submit a question and wait for a response. You can also search the list of questions others have asked (yours might already have been answered) and see that answer immediately.
