@article{Mishra2018ArithmeticWP, title={Arithmetic Word Problem Solver using Frame Identification}, author={Pruthwik Mishra and Litton J. Kurisinkel and D. Sharma}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2018}, volume={abs/1808.03028} }

Automatic Word problem solving has always posed a great challenge for the NLP community. Usually a word problem is a narrative comprising of a few sentences and a question is asked about a quantity referred in the sentences. Solving word problem involves reasoning across sentences, identification of operations, their order, relevant quantities and discarding irrelevant quantities. In this paper, we present a novel approach for automatic arithmetic word problem solving. Our approach starts with… Expand
