Computer software tells the hardware what to do. Without any software, the hardware would be worthless. Think of the software as a subject in school, and the hardware as you or your brain. Without any learning, you can't do anything. One you have learned some math, then you are able to solve math problems. This learning is usually accomplished through downloads or CD's that are loaded into the computer.
