# Getting Accurate Math Answers With ChatGPT (GPT-4)

### Using GPT-4's Code Interpreter and Code-base Self-Verification (CSV)

In recent times, the world of Large Language Models (LLMs) has seen exponential growth, notably with models like GPT-4 and PaLM-2. These models have revolutionized how we approach math reasoning problems, and with OpenAI's latest innovations, they're only getting better.

**GPT-4's Recent New Avatar: The Code Interpreter**

OpenAI fine-tuned GPT-4 to run Python code, it’s called the GPT-4 Code Interpreter, this model has showcased exemplary performance on some of the most challenging math datasets available. This Code Interpreter, dubbed GPT4-Code, has the prowess to:

Offer logical natural language reasoning.

Generate and execute Python code step by step.

Deliver the executed code's results back to the LLM, enhancing its decision-making.

**The Magic Ingredient: Code-based Self-Verification (CSV)**

GPT-4's success isn't magic, but it sure feels like it. The key lies in its unmatched capability to generate and execute code, evaluate the outcomes, and make necessary corrections based on unreasonable outputs. This entire mechanism is backed by the GPT-4 Code Interpreter.

To further enhance this process, Code-based-Self-Verification (CSV) can be used. This method amplifies GPT-4's mathematical reasoning potential. In cases where the self-verification process identifies discrepancies, GPT-4 takes the lead, amending its solutions, and rectifying errors. This is not just about generating and executing code; it's about the model's ability to adjust its strategies based on feedback.

CSV guides GPT4-Code to:

Generate additional verification code.

Refine reasoning steps in case of discrepancies.

The outcomes?

Incorrect solutions are promptly rectified (corrected).

Solutions that are verified resemble the reliability of human problem-solving.

**From GPT-4 to GPT4-Code: A Comparative Analysis**

When GPT4-Code was put to the test, it recorded an impressive **69.7%** accuracy on the intricate MATH dataset. A significant leap from GPT-4's previous score of 42.2%. But with the Code-based Self-Verification approach, **GPT4-Code further pushed its boundaries, achieving an astounding accuracy of 84.32%.**

**Prompt Examples: GCD and LCM**
