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...

And 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.

Here's the puzzle that has everyone scratching their heads.

Seems simple at first ...

But there's a lot of variety in answers!

As the Twitter thread proves.

Things got heated.

As more and more triangles were spotted. Just wait until you see the real answer.

More and more ...

They start adding up!

People were pretty certain.

But the answer actually was ...

Twenty-four! Did you get it?
