If there's one thing that everyone can agree on, it's that math is most certainly not for the faint-hearted. There are some geniuses out there who really push the boat out in the world of mathematics and have used the subject for incredible things such as sending man to the moon.
But even the most genius of geniuses are struggling with this one math equation, and it has puzzled the entire internet. Can you crack the code?
Let's be real, math isn't everyone's favorite subject...But for some people, math is an utter dream.
Who could forget Pythagoras Theorem?Well, we know for a fact that we can't remember all of it...
But for those mathematical geniuses out there...

Believe it or not, math is one of the most popular subjects to study in the world.
via: Getty ImagesPeople worldwide choose to study mathematics further when leaving school and pursue degrees and further qualifications such as PhDs in the subject.
A mathematics degree must contain some pretty gristly stuff...It hurts our heads to just think about it!
But as a famous mathemetician once said...

Life must be pretty simple then!Well, for people with ordinary brain sizes, that is...
Even the smartest of folk sometimes struggle with math...
via: Getty ImagesAnd a recent equation has truly taken the internet by storm as nobody can seem to work it out.
Time to get thinking...Here is the infamous equation that people just cannot get their heads around, and it isn't as scary as one would imagine.
Turns out, math really isn't that simple...The latest puzzle is all about counting triangles. Easy enough, right?
Wrong!The internet has gone crazy over figuring out the problem, and some people have gone to some pretty tricky lengths to prove that their answer is right.
These people are taking this very seriously...For what seems like a simple counting task, it has got the internet heated.
Because what looks simple at first...Is actually anything but.
So, how do we figure it out?Well, in spite of the initial appearance, the image contains way more triangles than you might think.
Missing just one can throw your whole answer off.Which is why the puzzle is so dang annoying!
Here's the puzzle that has everyone scratching their heads.

But there's a lot of variety in answers!
@jiteshpillaai 4! How is this an issue? A triangle has 3 (tri) corners... Never 4 corners.— Traci (@Traci)1523286782.0
Things got heated.
