Parse and evaluate simple math word problems returning the answer as an integer.

## Iteration 0 — Numbers

Problems with no operations simply evaluate to the number given.

What is 5?

Evaluates to 5.

What is 5 plus 13?

Evaluates to 18.

Handle large numbers and negative numbers.

## Iteration 2 — Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Now, perform the other three operations.

What is 7 minus 5?

2

What is 6 multiplied by 4?

24

What is 25 divided by 5?

5

## Iteration 3 — Multiple Operations

Handle a set of operations, in sequence.

Since these are verbal word problems, evaluate the expression from
left-to-right, ignoring the typical order of operations.

What is 5 plus 13 plus 6?

24

What is 3 plus 2 multiplied by 3?

15 (i.e. not 9)

## Iteration 4 — Errors

The parser should reject:

• Unsupported operations ("What is 52 cubed?")
• Non-math questions ("Who is the President of the United States")
• Word problems with invalid syntax ("What is 1 plus plus 2?")

## Bonus — Exponentials

If you'd like, handle exponentials.

What is 2 raised to the 5th power?

32
