Solve this complicated math puzzle and you’re smarter than the rest of us

Think you’re a math genius? This puzzle might just stump you. We’re no math geniuses here but this math puzzle has frustrated us for hours. The problem was handed out to 8-year-old students in Vietnam but even parents had a hard time helping their kids find the solutions.

The idea is to place digits 1 through 9 in the blank spaces so 66 is the ultimate answer. Uh, were we sick that day the teacher gave us mathematical powers in school to solve puzzles like this? We’ve been staring at this problem for a while now and still it makes no sense.

Oh well. Who needs to solve math problems these days when Google’s around?!
