I was homeschooled (that's not the confession part), and in 8th grade my algebra textbook had the answers to half the problems in the back. That seems to be the premise behind app called Socratic. The app lets you take a picture of a problem (you can also type it in, but that's a little laborious), and it'll not only give you an answer, but the steps necessary to to arrive at that answer — and even detailed explanations of the steps and concepts if you need them.
Also, I'd be remiss not to mention Photomath, which has been doing this since 2014, and actually has step-by-step explanations in the recently released Photomath paid version (there's a free trial).
I like the Socratic interface and explanations a bit better, but I'm glad to see this is a vibrant market.

Select the type of math you will be performing (Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Statistics, Finite Math, Linear Algebra, or Chemistry) from the drop-down menu (stacked bar icon).
Of course, cheating at math is a terrible way to learn, because the whole point isn't to know the answer to 2x 2 = 7x - 5, it's to understand the learn?
The app is actually designed to answer any kind of school question — science, history, etc. For other kinds of questions, Socratic kind of does a bit of Googling, and in my experience can typically find similar word problems on the wide internet, or from its own database of answers.Basic Math Solver offers you solving online fraction problems, metric conversions, power and radical problems.You can find area and volume of rectangles, circles, triangles, trapezoids, boxes, cylinders, cones, pyramids, spheres.Using the built-in keypad, enter the math problem you wish to solve, then click the paper airplane icon that will appear to the right of the entered problem.If the problem was correctly formatted, the answer will appear in the scrollable area above the paper airplane icon.Note that if you are unsure how to enter a problem, tap the stacked dots icon in the upper right-hand corner to see a list of example entries.If you would like to view the step-by-step solution, tap the "Tap to view steps ..." link.It has trouble with word problems, but if you can write down a word problem in math notation it shouldn't be an issue.I also tried it on a weird fraction from an AP algebra exam, which it kind of failed at, but then I swiped over and it was showing me this graph, which included the correct answer: I love this app, not just because it would've helped 8th grade Paul out of a jam, but because it's such a computery use of computers.-- Dan is currently selected in the "Data" tab, this line will list the name you gave to that data record.If no data record is selected, or you have no entries stored for this calculator, the line will display "None".
