Simple Fifth-Grade Math Equation Inspires Heated Debate On Twitter

What started out as a tweet asking followers to solve a (seemingly) very simple math problem turned into quite the heated debate between laypeople and mathematiciansalike about the correct way to use the order of operations. Needless to say, most of us have not so much as looked at a math problem since high school. Yikes.

Girl Does Basic Division, The Simple Math Breaks Everyone’s Brains

Out of all of humanity's inventions, numbers are by far some of the weirdest. When the Babylonians sat down and decided Algebra was a good idea, you know they must've been seriously bored.

That said, we've got to acknowledge that calculations are a big part of the reason that we have come this far. However, that doesn't stop a lot of people from being suspicious of them. Just months after Twitter went into meltdown after somebody proposed that math isn't real, it's been dumbfounded again by a smaller arithmetic-related dilemma. It's shocking, it's upsetting, it doesn't quite seem real, but unfortunately, the numbers check out. Eighty seven is fully divisible by twenty nine.

The screenshotted revelation has divided social media, with those who are losing it being countered by others who have pointed out that the calculation obeys some fairly simple mathematical rules. This one goes out to all those who spent math class staring out the window; this was the kind of bullsh*t they were pulling while we weren't listening.

numbers, math, mathematics, algebra, division, wow, lol, twitter, freak out

Big-Brained Nerds Who Did the Math Just for Fun

Some people like to scroll through memes for a light chuckle or two. Others prefer to check the accuracy of a joke through complex mathematical equations. You'd think the latter would suck the funny out of a meme. On the contrary, doing in-depth mathematical analysis to convert sperm DNA into megabytes in response to a meme about ejaculation is pretty hilarious. Subreddit r/theydidthemath is a goldmine of examples of nerds doing the math for no good reason. We've collected some of our favorite recent posts from the sub.

30 Dank Mathematical Memes For Big Brains

We know that math has a bad reputation for being the most hated school subject by the average kid, but the truth is, a lot of big-brained geeks out there are obsessed with numbers and equations—and there's plenty of reason to be! Without math, we never could have sent rockets into space. We would never know how much to tip a bartender, let alone split a check between a group of ten. Without math, we'd probably be cold, confused, and sitting around eating dirt all day. Don't ask me why, I just have a feeling that's what a math-less society would look like. We're celebrating math with this dank collection of hilarious math memes. Unless you're a math enthusiast, you probably won't understand half of these, but at least you can laugh at them in front of your friends to look smart.

Entertaining Times Knowledge Was Dropped On Stupid People

According to our timelines, pretty much everyone is a medical expert or scientist these days. These "experts" throw around knowledge that is factually untrue and sometimes even downright dangerous. And it's extremely satisfying when these wannabe Einsteins get schooled by actual professionals on social media. This gallery is full of that delicious dunking. We hope these numbskulls learned their lessons and maybe even starting cracking some actual books.

Educational Memes For The Socially Distant Student

Not a soul knows when schools will operate in-person again, so we thought we'd deliver you the next best thing to real education: educational memes. Okay, so admittedly they won't come anywhere close to the school experience, but at least they're more entertaining than school? Sure, we'll go with that.
