Solve maths problems with your camera.

I have no words


Ooooooooooo my... what is happening... my mom always told me that one day I would be good at math. I told her, “mom, the day I become good at math, pigs will fly.” I think pigs just flew. I read tons of reviews, all with five stars, saying this app saved lives. To test it, I wrote 2+2 in a shimmery purple jell pen on the back of my hand in the dark (not pitch black but lights off blinds closed 8:00 in the morning) and it was like oh yeah two plus two is four voilaaaa!!!!! Like woah... either I died or the world was enchanted with a magical spell cuz I am actually looking forward to doing my homework on Monday. My integrated math textbook is full of really hard word problems and ik the app can’t do word problems, but easy as pie I can write down a number problem for those word problems and this app will save me hours that I could be spending on other homework and sleep. Woah... also it’s FREE??????!!!! Before I did not get math and I had to get my older sister to tutor me but she will be off to college soon and I will be left tutorless. It’s true... this app saves lives.

This app saved my life


IXL. This app helped me conquer the most treacherous challenge I could face. IXL. It all started one day when I came home from school and was like how am I gonna do this IXL. Just then my friend texted me and was like hey what is the IXL. And I told her and I was like I'm stressing from all this IXL. So then she suggested Photomath. After that my whole life changed. An IXL that would usually take me two hours only took me ten minutes. I am so thankful. Whoever is reading this just know whoever created this app should earn an award, they are a genius. So if your ever skeptical about your math, or your having trouble just go to Photomath. And its not cheating either, it actually explains the problem step by step to help you, if cheating feels really uncomfortable for you. I already know how to do the curriculum and our teacher gives us hard IXLs because we are honors and she thinks we can handle it. But each of those problems take like an hour to work out. THANK YOU PHOTOMATH YOU SAVED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!
