The Viral Man, Shoe and Eyeglasses Math puzzle. This puzzle is not ordinary. It's very simple but tricky. It has gone viral on social media and reached over 4million people but many got it wrong.

Here is the puzzle for today.

If A pair of shoe + a pair of shoe + a pair of shoe = 30,

A man + a man + a pair of shoe = 20,

Two pairs of eyeglasses + two pairs of eyeglasses + a man = 13.

What will be a shoe + a man putting on eyeglasses, holding a pair of eyeglasses and also putting on shoe multiply by a pair of eyeglasses?.See picture below.

Now you have seen the puzzle on a picture, take some few minutes to solve it then come back to check wether our answers will match.

To solve this puzzle let's assign some letters to the variables in each of the question to make it simple for better

understanding.

Solution

Let a pair of she be "P", man be "M" and a eyeglasses be "E".

So, the first line will look like this P + P + P = 30.

This Implies

3P= 30

P= 30÷3

P = 10. A pair of shoe = 10. This implies a shoe = 5.

The second line will look like: M + M + P = 20. This implies 2M + 10 = 20 since our P was 10.

So, 2M + 10 = 20

2M = 20 - 10

2M = 10

M = 10÷2

M = 5. Five represents men.

Solving line three, 2E +2 E + M = 13.

4E + 5 = 13

4E = 13 - 5

4E = 8

E = 8÷4

E = 2. E represents two pairs of eyeglasses which means a pair of eyeglass is one in this question.

The final step is to substitute each of the values in the last equation. Let me rewrite the equation again but before that mind you that if a pair of shoe is 10 then a shoe will be 5.

So, this is how the equation Will look like.

1/2P + (M + E +E + P) × 1/2E= ?

The main trick in this question is in the last equation because many people just consider a man meanwhile the man is holding a pair of eyeglass, putting some and equally wears a pair of shoes.

Now let's substitute the values in the equation and simply.

1/2×10 + ( 5 + 1 + 1 + 10) × 1 = ?

5 + 17 × 1 = ?

5 + 17 = ?

22= ? The correct answer to this puzzle is 22 if you have different answers comment please.
