Remember the days when you could solve math problems like 5/6x – 3.9867 + 4x(x-7) = 99/x+1 ? Me neither, but a new app will make life a lot easier for school kids by just pointing your phone camera at a math problem and it instantly solves it. The Photomath app uses text reading capabilities and some complex math calculating software to just scan and solve math problems via the camera.
And it doesn’t only just spit out the answer. You can get the step by step solution as well to check how you got there.
Now if only it could tell you whether you’ll actually ever use those problems later in real life.
