I Usually meet " Just tell me, I'll show you if I can help" , Why in this situation, we have "I'll see". What is difference between them.

Hello, Dong. I'm sorry, but I have never heard 'I'll show you if I can help'-- I'm not sure I can figure out what it means. Where or with whom do you usually meet this phrase?

In the test sentence, 'I'll see' means 'I'll decide'/'I'll work out'

See = Discern or deduce mentally after reflection or from information; understand
I can't see any other way to treat it
I saw that perhaps he was right
