Let's face it, mathematics is one of the hardest subjects in school and not everyone has an aptitude for it. Daniel Marven found out the hard way why it is better to use a calculator before posting something maths-related on Twitter.

Marven wanted to help Saffas save money this year but he completely botched his calculations. The internet celeb tried to explain to people how to save money with just R10 a day.

He wrote:

"From as little as R10 a day, you can be R766 500 richer at the end of the year."

However, the post went viral and South Africans were quick to point out the maths did not add up.

Twitter user, @kabelodick, commented:

"This is what we call voodoo mathematics."

Another tweep, @Phaahla_, wrote:

"Looks like an ANC municipality invoice to supply candles to counter load-shedding."

Social media user, @rakadimo24, said:

"Products of Angie Motshekga’s maths literacy."

Marven's maths was not the first blunder to go viral. previously reported South Africans were left speechless over a meat price mistake.

A funny tweet recently seemed to play off this misconception when a man revealed a small pack of lamb that was valued at a bizarre price.

Twitter user S E P H I R I (@sephiritsikeli) shared the controversial tweet and included the caption:

"R734 for 6 pieces. Does this meat have the blood of Jesus?"

The tweet sparked some lively, but funny debate.
