Maths Riddle leaves a group of engineers puzzled
A woman on TikTok gave a group of engineers a math puzzle and it left them completely in awe. Take a look below:
Karin Gendi gave his smart companions three minutes to figure out “the equation.”
She handed them a piece of paper with two “100” numbers stacked on top of each other, with a line underneath.
The TikToker asked them, “If you can turn that into two cents with one line, I’ll give you whatever you want.”
At first, the three friends looked at each other, as if to say, “Is this a joke?
However, as a minute passed, they began to struggle with it.
One of them asked, “With one line? “
Where Karin replied: “Using only one line.”
Another friend hilariously turned the page and said, “Let’s look at this from a different perspective.”
However, as time was about to pass, one of his friends managed to crack the code.
By inserting a small line through the ‘1’ of the first ‘100’, the page then reads – ‘too hundred’.
Don’t worry, it took me a while to get it too.
The viral video was posted six days ago (September 21) and has racked up 38.2 million views.
Users were of course quick to comment on the post.
One user wrote: “‘Let’s look at it from a different perspective’ haha yes they’ve been in an engineering class before.”
Another user suggested, “Replace the first 100 with Too. “
While a third commented: “Lol. He got it.
“You could see the light bulb go out.”
A final user concluded: “Suddenly the piece fell silent when she took out the puzzle, real engineers.”
