No One Can Solve This Math Question Given To First Graders In Singapore

By Mark Pygas

As if we needed yet another reminder that we're terrible at math, an exam question given to first graders in Singapore has the Internet scratching their collective heads. "Study the number pattern. Fill in the missing numbers," the instructions read.  

The question is a number problem, with a circle split in four with different numbers in each section. Around the sides are four empty circles, with another circle in the middle of the first circle. The questions asks children to fill in the four circles with no numbers so that they total the middle number in all cases.
