The LaTeX answers package

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The answers package provides a way to bind a solution to an exercise in a LaTeX environment. This package was designed for the general LaTeX community and may not be the best choice for SWP and SW documents. We urge the use of the Exam Builder.

With the answers package, you can store the bound solutions in several different files at once, so that you can print them at different times, such as in the appendix of a book as well as a handout for students. Further, you can create and include many different solutions files in a document, such as one for each section or chapter of a book. The package supports any number of solution types, including hints for students.

Available commands associate the exercises with the solutions and define, open, and close the solutions files. See the package documentation for more information about using the commands and for examples of using the package. The option to create solutions files is available through the Options and Packages command on the Typeset menu.

The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/answers directory.
