This math intelligence test has gone viral on Facebook, shared well over three million times and counting to date. Can you solve it?

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 puzzles below and see if you can figure out the pattern in the numbers.

If you can’t solve it, below the test are explanations and answers for the tricky math problems. It goes over how to arrive at the answer and the rule of reasoning behind it.

## 1. If 6 + 4 = 210, then ?+? = 123

6 + 4 = 210

9 + 2 = 711

8 + 5 = 313

5 + 2 = 37

7 + 6 = 113

9 + 8 = 117

10 + 6 = 416

15 + 3 = 1218

? + ?? = 123

Can you pass this mind test?

### Answer To This Viral Intelligence Test

Here’s the solution:

There is a pattern that you might notice in this brain teaser – the numbers start adding up in a pattern.

For instance, let’s take the equation: 9 + 2 = 711. How can we get 711 from these numbers?

9 — 2 = 7

9 + 2 = 11

Now, you will get the number 711

So, ?+? = 123

Similarly, If you split the number in two: the answers you need to get are 1 and 23

Find the numbers that will add up to 23. You will also need to subtract one from another to give you 1.

12 — 11 = 1

12 + 11 = 23

If you write them together, you get 123 so the answer is 12 + 11 = 123

## 2. If, 11 x 11 = 4, then 33 x 33 = ?

This genius IQ test claim that only geniuses can solve it. So, can solve this math problem?

11 × 11 = 4
22 × 22 = 16
33 × 33 = ?

### Hint To Solve This Math Problem

The equation has a pattern:

11 × 11 → (1 + 1)(1 + 1) = 4
22 × 22 → (2 + 2)(2 + 2) = 16

Similarly, If try the same pattern here,

33 × 33 → (3 + 3)(3 + 3) = 36

The answer to this intelligence test is 36. What was yours?

Interesting, 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.?
