Do You Have Above Average Intelligence? Take This Simple Test To Find Out

Certain math puzzles are not as straight-forward as you might think. Some of them are designed to confuse people. It's not that the puzzle doesn't make sense; it's that you have to figure it out.

One puzzle making the rounds on the internet has a lot of people stumped. It's an 'intelligence test' and the puzzle urges you to 'share if you understand.'

Upon looking at the puzzle, you might think it's simply a failing math test. The puzzle says six plus four equals 210, and nine plus two equals 711. If you are thinking, "That's crazy! Six and four are 10!" then you're looking at it wrong.

If you don't want to know the trick, read no further. This is your friendly spoiler alert.

The reason for the crazy answers is that it's not straight-forward addition. Remember, this isn't a math quiz, it's more like a riddle. Six minus four equals two; six plus four equals 10. The pattern is that the answers combine both the subtraction and addition problem.

That's why six plus four here is 210. Two is the subtraction answer, and 10 is the addition answer.

If you look at the rest of the problems, the pattern holds up throughout. Now go and stump your friends with it.
