So another math puzzle has hit the internet and is driving the existing genius netizens crazy. This isn't over the top math puzzle like the 'flower math puzzle' we saw a few weeks ago. This is something that appears to be so easy at first, but trust me, if you solve it right in the very first go (and better, within a minute) then, my dear friend, you are a certified genius.

If you've succeeded at this one, give a try to these 'count the horses', 'the hidden T puzzle' and the 'clever toothpick puzzle.'

Well, there are 2 ways to solve this math puzzle. The first being adding each of the numbers on the left side of the equation and multiplying the value by three. For example, 1+5=6, so 6*3=18. Similarly, the next row goes the same as (2+10)*3=36. ** **By this logic, 4+24=24.

If you notice the "answers" of each individual equation, you'll see that the scalar factor of the number nine gets raised twice: 9*2=18, 9*4=36, 9*6=54, and 9*8=72.

So how much time did you take to get the correct answer? SHARE in the comments below!
