Siri Tip of the Day: Do Math

Siri is good at math. Simply put your math question into words and she will solve it. Yes, this is “Word Problems.” You probably thought you were through with them.

Siri is good at math. All you have to do is ask. For example, “What’s 490 divided by 139?” (Siri will read the answer to you out loud.)

In some cases, Siri doesn’t provide the answer natively. Instead, she gets the answer from Wolfram Alpha. Either way, you get what you want, without using your hands.
