# How long did it take you to solve this "maths equation"

Apparently, it takes a genius to solve this:

What are your thoughts on the difficulty of this “problem”?

It took me about 20 seconds to see the pattern and I think it has nothing to do with math, let alone a genius.

took me 18 seconds

Yeah this is more pattern recognition than math. I thought I was going to see some fields medal type questions…

is this serious? Is this like one of those facebook things where the person who barely made it out of high school shares the quiz she took that proves she’s a genius? And then she’s all bragadocious about it?

The real fun is here, for 1 in 30,000 type outliers (real genius)…

oh, come on PA… I got stuff to do! now I’m not going to be able to concentrate until I solve this thing.

I saw this on Facebook the other day, but I didn’t understand it at the time. I thought maybe you had to cube the numbers and add them together or something.

I guess I am not a genuis. I shall now fade quietly into the night, like the hacksawed that I am…

this is some good will hunting shit…watch a plumber solve it and end that debate once and for all

^^

The stripper is going to solve it. The stripper is going to solve it during downtime at work tonight

Genius is what … 1 in 100? I doubt this is at the 1 in 30,000 level.

That question is part of a test for 1 in 30K to 30M+ type intelligences. It’s not really for IQ 135 people (1 in 100).

If you’re 5 yrs old and you can do it under 20s then ur genius. For any adult it should take no time at all.

This is too easy for you. You should solve the Voynich Manuscript. It requires an IQ level of 999+.

Hint: Nobody (even with the help of modern supercomputers) has been able to decipher it yet.

Is it really worth it to decipher that thing? Some guy wrote it hundreds of years ago, who is probably not nearly as smart as the person who is needed to decipher it. Instead, the decipherer could be spending hundreds of hours on actually useful things. Sure, maybe there is some secret alien technology hidden in there, but probably not.

When it’s finally decoded and it reads: “Drink more ovaltine”,

That’ll be dope.
