Have you studied Maths? Here’s a viral Math equation! Can you solve this? Have you studied Maths? Here's a viral Math equation! Can you solve this?

Social media nowadays have become a question paper itself. Every day new challenges come up, like Bottle cap challenge and now the math’s equation. Well, if you hate mathematics, the place is not for you, but if you love maths, then time for another test. A Twitter user named KJ Cheetham recently shared a match equation which seems simple and easy, with the answer provided, asks the people to make a sense out of it.

He wrote in a tweet, “A maths meme that is actually funny rather than stupid: Solve carefully! 230 – 220 x 0.5=?” Likewise, he shared an answer and wrote, “You probably won’t believe it but the answer is 5!”

The equation grabbed the attention of the people and collected 29,672 retweets so far and about the likes, it got 58,035 hearts for the equation. There were many who tried to solve the math equation, but some of them were just scratching their heads.

If you go by school-level maths then the answer concludes 120, but how did it get 5? Puzzled? Okay, well now see the answer again. The user wrote the answer is 5!. Don’t neglect the exclamation here. The exclamation is a symbol for factorial, which is denoted by ‘n!’ and hence it is the product of the rest of the positive integers less than or equal to ‘n’. This means ‘5!’ is “5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1”, and hence the answer is 120. Hence Proved.
