A new app called PhotoMath has just launched on the Android app store and it could really help with tricky maths homework.
The way it works is by using the camera to photograph equations. The app will then figure out what you need to know, and then figure out what x is equal to. Best of all, it will even guide you through step-by-step so you can see how it got to the answer.
As the app is only in its first release, it can’t solve everything – so don’t expect a solution to the Hodge Conjecture just yet, but here’s what the developers say that it can tackle:
“PhotoMath currently supports basic arithmetics, fractions, decimal numbers, linear equations and several functions like logarithms. Support for new Math is constantly added in new releases as we aim to make the entire Math easy to learn.”
