10-Year-Old Kid's Homework Left The World In Shock!


I’m sure you’ve helped your kid or nephew/niece with their math homework before. Some of us maybe do it every day.

So a 10-year-old elementary school kid who lives in England couldn’t solve his math homework and asked for help from his dad.

The father, who has a degree in math and a master's degree in economics, didn’t get it either and asked his friends who’re also math teachers but apparently no one could solve the problem. Then the father decided to post the question on social media to get help.

People came up with different answers to this confusing math problem. Some didn't  think complexly and answered 32, and some –and widely accepted- said that it’s 44 for both of the questions. 

After analyzing both of the shapes, we can tell that the second one is much more confusing than the first one.

Here's how a Twitter user found the answer:

Solution for the first one:
