At least that’s what: try to solve this difficult equation! In the last days of this problem on the Internet has gained wide popularity. Remember all your knowledge, turn off the calculator and try to work head!
To correctly solve this puzzle, You must log out from the so-called “boxes”, that is, to think otherwise than is customary. For a few moments forget all the standard rules and try to think abstractly. Believe me: this task will show You what is capable the human mind, reports Rus.Media.
Take a pen and paper and get going! The solution to this puzzle does not depend on good or bad have You had with mathematics. Here we need completely different skills that will definitely be useful to You in life!
If You failed to meet the challenge – we have You covered!
Let’s start with the first line! Nobody would argue about the truthfulness of this equation? 1 + 4 = 5! Let’s move to the second line. Know what You need to do to get 12? To add to the sum of the second equation the result of the first. So, 2+5 turns 7, and 7 to add 5 – 12! The same principle applies and in the following lines. 3+6 is 9. 9 add 12 and get 21! And finally, the last line. 8+11 turns 19. The 19th added 21 and get the final result – 40!

If You have a mathematical mind, you can use the following formulas: A + B = a + A(B). Obviously, 1 + 4 = 5! From the second spot: 2 + 2(5) = 12. Moving on: 3 + 3(6) = 21. I think the principle is already clear! But, we all make mistakes: doing the same thing with the last line, we get a response 96!
And how here to be? No one knows yet. Internet users are still arguing among themselves which option to take as the correct answer.
As it turned out, it all depends on the way decisions are made. In this equation there is no one single and correct solution. Depending on the method You get or 40, or 96!
