So most of us are pretty OK at Math. We can add, divide, subtract and multiply so when the Holderness family posted this problem on the internet, the adults were all scratching their heads. This is far beyond the level of a first grader, or so we thought. Or maybe the little tykes are getting a little too smart for their own good.

The US based family posted this problem online and said that the level of difficulty was far beyond that of first grade. It was the last problem in a series of problems in a 7-page homework assignment. The previous pages were filled with kid’s stuff as expected.

Many people also responded to this problem saying that this didn’t serve any actual purpose in life and it was useless. tricky maths problem, viral math problem, first grader math problem, math, tricky math question, Holderness family math problem

“ The answer is J=14. It is a complex math question that requires you to substitute the letters with numbers. You take the value of the S, B, and G and add them to get 40. Then you subtract the values of B and P from 40. That leaves a difference of 14, which is letter J. It all has to do with getting children to think in complex ways.”
