### Abstract:

"
Mathematical equation solving is a very common task done by almost all the
people in their day to day activities. It is stated that the most common way of solving
mathematical equations is by using pen and paper and manually performing the
calculations. However, this is time consuming and as humans we intend to do various
mistakes when performing calculations. Also, if we are using calculators, there is a
possibility of entering the incorrect digits and symbols by mistake.
Therefore, this research discusses a solution for that, which is recognizing
handwritten mathematical equations by taking a photo of the equation and give out the
calculated solution. However, because of the ambiguities of handwritten mathematical
digits and symbols it is said that handwritten mathematical equations recognition is
very challenging. Therefore, handwritten mathematical equations recognition and
calculation using image processing and CNN is said to be very challenging and growing
research component in the domain of software engineering."
