If You Can Solve This Math Puzzle You’re Officially A Genius.

There are a few exceptions to the rule, but experience has probably shown you that you either are a math person, or you most definitely are not. Some people are bad at math but try hard to be good at it, some people are bad at it and go out of their way to avoid it, and some people are actually pretty good at it but just hate it with the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns. We get it: Math can be pretty intense.

Unfortunately, it's almost always used to determine how well your brain is working, and your ability to solve math equations is often synonymous with your overall intelligence level. Take, for instance, this elaborate math equation, known across the Internet as the "Intelligence Test." Some say that only true geniuses can solve this complicated equation, but we know the truth: Even if you can't solve it, you can share it and pretend like you did!

This is the "Intelligence Test" that's been circulating around the Internet.

The test has been shared over three million times on Facebook. Look at it for awhile and try to figure it out. Can you see the solution here?

Don't worry if it takes a bit to figure out.

Yeah, at first glance -- we didn't get it either. These kinds of equations can be really tricky.

As it turns out, the sum of the digits become the last digit or last two digits of the result.

But that doesn't explain where that pesky first digit comes from, does it?

Still baffled?

It's actually a matter of simple algebra, but solving it can get a little dicey.
