The Mzansi digital space is one again reacting to funny images from one of the biggest retailers. Looking at the pictures as posted by one famous social media user, the shop displayed a number of specials.

However, it seems the mathematics is not spot on and Mzansi finds the pictures so hilarious and they shared their comments. In one of the snaps, a loaf of bread is sold for R9,99 each and you pay R25,00 when you buy two - which is confusing for many locals.

Mzansi social media users spot maths mistake in a pic of a stunning teacher

Checking out a previous maths story, Briefly News published that Mzansi social media users are now amused after an image of a teacher who has seemingly got it all wrong in a mathematics class.

Standing in front of a black chalkboard, the image suggests the mistress had some maths exercise on the board where the social network users have spotted and giving her some corrections.

In a picture shared by @AdvoBarryRoux, it is captioned ‘But R110 - R16.50 is not R126.50. Kea hana mistress.’

The post has left the Mzansi Twitter community in stitches and has shared their reactions, with some saying the woman in the picture is not actually a teacher.
