Our #RacerScholar is alumnus Mitesh Miyani

This week’s #RacerScholar, Mitesh Miyani, co-presented at the International Conference on Advanced Computing Technologies and Applications (ICACTA-2015). This work, “Word Problem Solver System using Artificial Intelligence,” was published in the Procedia Computer Science book series, Procedia Computer Science–an Open Access publication.

Abstract:

Mathematical problems expressed in narrative form are answered by
conversion of the circumstances to equivalent computations or equations,
which can be solved arithmetically, algebraically, or with symbolic
logic. Any mathematics exercise expressed as a hypothetical situation
explained in words are the word problems. These word problems are solved
with the help of the equations known as ‘Simultaneous Equations’.
‘Simultaneous Equations’ are the equations, which include and deal with
more than one variable. Here, we refer to the equations dealing with two
variables. To find the values of these two variables, one needs two
equations dealing with the same variables.

Students normally face problems in forming these equations from a given
word problem. Due, to this, they are not able to proceed further to get
a solution. This results in a solution named as Word Problem Solver
System, which looks forward to help the students not only in
understanding the solution of a word problem, but also provides them a
step-by-step procedure for solving it. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
