People can get answers to history questions at Chegg, infoplease and enotes. These websites offer free and premium accounts to look up questions. Each website uses a different method or tool for finding the answers.
At Chegg, a history question is answered on the front page of the website. The answers come from over 9,000 textbooks in the digital library. Keywords used in the question allow the tool to find the appropriate answer, though the person asking the question needs to look through the answers to find the best on. There are also premium tools on Chegg for getting study help.
Infoplease also has a simple interface, where the person types in a question and gets an answer from an online database of information. There is also the option of selecting a subject first, such as clicking on History, then typing in the question.
