UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson struggled to solve advanced mathematics in a classroom he visited on Monday, 27 January.

According to Metro UK, a video showed the UK prime minister scratching his head, trying to see how he could provide answers to the question at King’s College London Mathematics School.

Despite the fact that some A-level students tried to explain the difficult formulas of the questions to him, he still did not get it.

It should be noted that he was at the school to begin the new Global Talent visa which will come to take the place of Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) from Thursday, 20 February.
