The Math Solver feature is available in Microsoft Edge starting in Canary build 90.0.816.0. The idea is to allow students to quickly solve a math problem by analyzing the page content or the user input. Math Solver in Edge utilizes Microsoft's very own online service that allows doing the same within the browser. It can be useful when solving trigonometry, arithmetic, algebra, calculus, statistics, and other calculations.

    Why not put this in the calculator app?
    While I’m not against this feature, I’m thinking that a browser is a rather strange place for a tool like this.
