# 35 Times People Had Trouble With Simple Math And Other Just Had To Share

There are people who never admit it when they do something wrong and this is something we see every day. Those who allow mistakes can easily be forgiven if they admit it but it does not happen like that in most cases. The images below suggest such examples.

1. The number

It seems that someone made a mistake here because the entire population of the U.S. is nowhere near half a billion people.

2. The taxes

We guess that these numbers are nothing but scary and those who decided on this matter need to redo the calculation.

3. The equation

It seems that this funny image looks impressive at first but then you need to do the math again and understand it.

4. The discount

We are not sure if this was an innocent mistake or they tried to pull our leg here but this is a wrong calculation.

5. The goals

This is kind of inspiring when you see it at first but then you could not help but notice there is something wrong with it, too.

6. The offer

This person needs to sit back and calculate the price again. Someone is better off buying the two items separately.

7. The calculator

It seems that people are always relying on calculators for the simplest tasks but you can see that can be a problem.

8. The age

This is the kind of question that can lead to fun answers, to say the least. This person needs to read the requirement again.

9. The joke

Here is something to think about. This person got us thinking about this assumption and we can’t tell if it was a joke.

10. The billion

Someone should probably tell this person that she has a lot more to do to amass a million fans. 96 million are not enough.

11. The diagram

Well, there is not much we could add here because it is obvious that those diagonals cannot have that length.

12. The discount

Whoever decided to announce this discount needs to know that the actual percentage is 10%, not 50%.

13. The lunch

It seems that the free plate is not as free as clients would like to. It is obviously calculated in the price.

14. The balance

Someone failed to understand that you could actually split 190 in half and receive tho 50% shares easily.

15. The offer

Here is how a store decided to confuse all customers who wanted to buy bread. This is fun to see, no doubt.

16. The total

This person decided to act fast but it is obvious that he should have read the text slowly first.

17. The time

We would have loved this if it was related to a certain date – February 20th. You can see why this is wrong.

18. The numbers

Here is how one person was able to post the weirdest possible ad! You can see the simple solution to their problem.

19. The pregnancy

This person wanted to be funny but they made a simple mistake. No pregnancy lasts for 12 months and that is a fact.

20. The lottery

This person allowed a giant mistake in their post and they even defended their calculation in the comments below.

Here is yet another person who wanted to shame someone but failed to do the math first. You can bet people were amused by it.

22. The age

We thought that the person who decided to comment on this post joked but it seems they were serious.

23. The funny image

Well, it takes a genius to solve this task like that, or that is what it seems initially. The funny image below is used for a reason here.

24. The weight

We tried to understand what this person wanted to say but we don’t get it. A gram is a gram regardless if the materials weighted.

25. The hour

Well, this is a cute thing to say but there must have been a distraction involved because the calculation was incorrect.

26. The card

This person has the wrong idea about how cashback works. They were charged as they should but they thought they scored some money.

27. The subtraction

There are moments in life when we feel there is no hope for humanity and this is one of these moments.

28. The distance

It appears that people who do not understand math should simply be humble about it and agree with those who do.

Here is how one person decided to show their knowledge but they failed at it. Another person commented with a realistic answer.

30. The restaurant

This person had the audacity to speak with the manager because she failed at doing the math. Her post on social media was slammed.

31. The age

Well, this person needs to calculate things again, and so should all the others who want to post something witty on social media.

32. The quarters

The quarter equation shown here is actually kind of funny, not to mention very inaccurate.

33. The IQ

Here is one person who tried to be funny while insulting someone. We guess they learned a valuable lesson here.

34. The kids

We have no idea how this person made this calculation but we are quite sure math does not work that way.

35. The similar equation

This is another person who obviously had some trouble calculating something really simple.
