This intelligence test has gone viral on Facebook, shared well over three million times and counting to date.

It claims that those who can solve and understand it have an IQ of at least 150, which means they’re of genius caliber.

On average, two-thirds of IQ test takers score anywhere between 85 and 115, and just 5% of people score over 125. A score of 150 or more would put you in the realm of the brightest, most intelligent minds on Earth.

Take a look at the puzzle below and see if you can figure out the pattern in the numbers. If you can’t solve it, take a look at the video from the MindYourDecisions YouTube channel below the test. It goes over how to arrive at the answer and the rule of reasoning behind it.

Even if you are able to solve the puzzle, do you understand exactly how you arrived at the answer and could you prove the intelligence test rule behind it? If not, don’t miss watching the footage at the end of the article.

Carrieanne AveryInteresting, and yes i figures out how they came up with the answers and the pattern that is in the equation if we call one . It took me about a minute give or take. So what does it mean if I could figure it out.?

I, believe, that the test is asking for one single number+one two-digit number.

“?+??”=123.

If so, I’m stumped.

If not, then I would calculate differently.

Suri PilchickThe two numbers are:

9+ 14= (1)23

stanley skripsky9 + 2 =11 9- 2 = 7

=711

Gerald BritzThe last two numbers are the sum and the prefix the diffirence.

Mel6+4=10

6-4=2

=>210

shaivik k12+11=123

shaivik kThe last two digits are the sum and prefixed ones are the difference of two numbers.

Elena Gallo6-4=2

6+4=10

which combined give 210.

And so on.

KrisThe difference between the first two numbers is the first number. Then add the numbers together.

MelanieIn the box above, the pattern is subtract the two numbers, then add them.

MelanieSubtract the two numbers, then add them
