According to the &lsquo\;enhanced&rsquo\; indispensability argument for platonism\, mathematics contributes to the explanatory power of some empirical explan- ations. Nominalists have denied that mathematics plays this kind of explan- atory role. In this paper we show that while the platonists are correct in saying that mathematics can boost an explanation&rsquo\;s explanatory power\, they are wrong in thinking that this supports mathematical platonism. Nominalists need not deny that mathematics can make a real contribution to explanations&rsquo\; explanatoriness\, since the kind of contribution that mathematics makes can be accommodated in nominalist terms. \;
