Not everybody loves math and in some cases, we may avoid doing math whenever possible. The reality of it is, however, that math can teach us a lot about ourselves, including our level of intelligence.

When was the last time you did a complex math problem in your mind? I’m sure that you would prefer to use a calculator, but just this one time, we would like you to use your brain.

The math problem that we have for you here is not overly difficult, but many people are struggling to come up with the answer. It’s not a trick and there is no secret behind the problem, it is just a math problem.

In just a moment, we are going to provide you with the answer. Just make sure that you did the math yourself first so you can check your answer.
