How to solve math problems using google lens.
Having trouble with a math problem? Google Lens can solve it with just a photo.
A calculator is a handy tool for solving math problems, but it can sometimes be a pain to type the equation. Google Lens can solve a problem simply by taking a photo. We'll show you how to use the feature.
Android devices can access Google Lens in a couple of different ways, depending on your phone. However, the universal method that works for Android , iPhone , and iPad is through the Google app.
Of course, the first thing you'll need is a math problem to solve. Google Lens can solve simple equations such as "5+2" or more complex formulas such as "x 2 - 3x + 2." You can scan the problem from a real-world piece of paper or from a digital display.
Open the "Google" app on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone , or iPad . Tap the "Lens" icon from the right side of the search bar.
Next, swipe over to "Homework" in the bottom toolbar.
Point your device's camera at the math problem you want to solve, making sure the problem is inside the frame. Tap the "Shutter" button.
First, double-check that the question at the top of the card is correct. You can tap "Steps to Solve" to see the steps that were taken to get to the solution. The solution is shown at the bottom.
To scan a different problem from the same photo, tap the "T" icon above the solution card.
Next, tap the next solution you'd like to solve.
The solution will appear in the card below again.
If the Google response is not adequate or it can't find a solution, you can pull up on the card to reveal the full Google Search results with solutions from other sources.
That's it! Hopefully, you'll be able to find solutions to all your problems.

Google can now solve trickier math problems for you with these new features
Math is a challenging subject because it requires an understanding of how to perform the operation to reach an answer, which makes it more difficult to Google an equation to find the answer difficult -- until now.
Google added new updates to Search and Lens that make it easier for users to get assistance when solving math problems. All users have to do now is type the equation or integral into the Search bar, or take a picture with Lens to get a step-by-step explanation or solution.
Also: Chrome on iOS unveils a much-anticipated feature. Here's how to access it
To test out the experience for yourself, on desktop, you can type in an equation or type the term "Math Solver" on Google Search where you will be prompted to enter a math problem or select from the examples to see how it works. The math solver experience will be coming to mobile soon.
Lens can also be leveraged by users to take a photo of geometry triangle problems, solving the challenge of trying to put primarily visual problems into words.
Advancements in Google's large language models also give Search the capability to solve word problems.
All you have to do is type the problem into Search, where you will be met with steps that tell you how to solve the problem by identifying the known and unknown values and providing correct formulas.

Lastly, Google is also making it easier to explore STEM-related concepts on Search by including 3D models and interactive diagrams for almost 1,000 biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and related topics, according to Google.
For example, if you Google "mitochondrion" you will have the opportunity to click on and learn from an interactive diagram that provides an overview, as well as specific details about the individual parts.
Google will soon roll out a fix for an issue that can render devices inoperable

How to scan?
To solve a math problem, point the camera at your math problem to take a picture and Photomath will show you the solution or solutions.
Holding firmly and writing with a neat handwriting will make scanning faster.
If the result is not shown after two to three seconds, then either the math problem is not supported or the app is unable to properly recognize the text (for example, due to poor light conditions or camera not being clean).
You can use the math keyboard to input the problem manually.

Lifesaver, Quick, great Math Tutors ❤️ Worth the price!
My 11 year old son is homeschooled and I haven’t done algebra in over 20 years!!! I am shocked that 5th graders are starting algebra early 😩. This math tutor app is a lifesaver and saved me time on trying to figure out the solution before I explain the answer to my son. I am able to explain the equations and solutions to my son a lot easier and fast. Thanks to the tutors and quick questions to my math questions. I purchased the one year subscription and worth it!!!!!!.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, We're really happy to hear that! Thank you for these nice words. Best regards, MathMaster Team
Happy when it works
I have always had good response time during morning and daytime hours. At night(PST) it is hit and miss. At times I get the response that there isn’t anybody there to solve my problem and I had to wait several hours. My biggest issue is I paid for the premium service which provides 10 solutions a day. I have a constant problem of running out of solutions and I have had to purchase solutions to continue my work. I contacted support and they fixed the problem within a couple of days and I received my 10 solutions. However, after I used those solutions the account did not provide me anymore solutions so I had to purchase more. I contacted support again was told I needed to purchase the premium service for the daily solutions. I replied back I was a premium customer and I received my 10 solutions. That was the last time I received any daily solutions. I have since sent three messages to support with no response. I like the app when it works because they will show the work on how they reached answer.
Hello! Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with solution time at night, we are already on it. Please, text us at [email protected] with any problem and we will do everything to fix it asap. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Regards, MathMaster Team.
They trying to scam you
I purchase 9.99 for 3 coins which it’s pretty expensive in first place. 2nd when you asked for step by step for a very detailed work; some workers only send you Photomath work which I didn’t ask for. Not explain by details they trying to find easy way to get your money. I could use photomath at my own time but I asked for professional to help and yet they aren’t professional since they needed photmath to help themselves. Also the support team is very rude too since they quoted “ I don’t understand, what is the reason for your conversion? You pay for answers to your questions, and how the expert will do it is his personal business) The most important thing is that the answers are correct!” I didn’t ask for the answer in the first place I asked for step by step detailed work. I don’t care about the answer I care about how you solve this equation by steps. If I pay $9.99 I don’t expect you to go in photmath and just send me answer. I expect you to help me understand how to solve this equation step by step. I wouldn’t recommend this at all. They just trying to scam your money! DO NOT GET THIS APP.
