When you multiply two things in Mathematica (or W|A) you can write it two ways:Why is Wolfram Alpha dropping part of my input equation? If there is a length limit, I would expect an error message, but it proceeds to solve the latter portion of the equation with no error indication.

1) As kdshart2 showed you can write x*y.

2) Put a space between the two: x y

I don't think it knows what to do with something like 2y.
