Are you a math aficionado? Perhaps it was your best subject in school, or maybe you just enjoy the challenge of figuring out a difficult equation. Either way, this is the genius math equation is for you.

## Genius Math Equation

This problem is not like a regular math problem: It breaks all the known “rules” or “laws” of mathematics.

Try to find the connection between these equations:

### A Quick Hint

Can’t quite figure it out? Here’s a tip: Don’t focus so much on the big number in the answer. Instead, think of it as several smaller numbers put together rather than one large one.

### Genius Math Equation, Answer Revealed

If you are completely stumped and just want to know the answer, here it is:

Each number after the equals sign represents the results of three sums formed by multiplying, adding, and subtracting the two numbers before the equals sign.

Confused? Take a look at this example:

8+2 = 16106
8×2 = 16
8+2 = 10
8-2 = 6

This principle applies to all the equations after this. Send it to your friends and family to see if they can solve it.

## Other Mind Tricks

If that test wasn’t enough, then give these next few a try.

Good luck, and don’t forget to challenge your friends and family to this genius math equation.
