Math is more than just adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Once you start bringing in letters and formulas, things can get a little bit complicated. Some of the more advanced studies of math include:

- Calculus
- Algebra
- Statistics
- Probability

Although these are really useful in the real world, not everyone is a fan of numbers and equations. Once you left high school you probably thought you were never going to come across math ever again. Well, think again.

A tricky math problem has gone viral online and people are going crazy over it. This isn’t like the standard question on your 7th grade math test, it’s more of a brain teaser. Do you think you can figure it out?

Before we give you the question, we just want to give you a heads up of what you’re getting yourself into. This isn’t a regular arithmetic question.

Even if you’re a total math lover, this still might be a little confusing for you. Honestly, the question doesn’t really make sense if you’re a rational person. So here goes…

This is the ‘math test’ that is going viral online. As you can see, the answers are totally wrong. 8 + 2 = 16106!? We all know that 8 + 2 = 10… right? But it looks like ALL of the answers follow the same pattern.

Like we mentioned before, this is going to take a bit of thinking. This is going to require you to think outside the box.

This one is going to require a little bit of brainpower. But lucky for you, we will give you a hint. Go back to your elementary days and focus on the basics like addition, subtraction, and multiplication

8 x 2 = 16 8 + 2 = 10 8 – 2 = 6 They all follow the same pattern
