The purpose of this paper is to discuss the bi-directional relationship between reading comprehension and problem solving, i.e. how reading comprehension can affect and become an integral part of problem solving, and how it can be affected by the mathematical text content or by the mathematical situation when the text is read. Based on theories of reading comprehension and a literature review it is found that the relationship under study is complex and that the reading process can affect as well as act as an integral part of the problem solving process but also that not much research has focused on this relationship.
