- The mum was helping her daughter with her homework when he got stuck
- She took to social media to ask for help from people across the world
- Most people who commented on her post became confused and turned the whole thing into comedy
It is every parent's dream to see his or her children prosper in life at whatever stage.
From school to work to other ventures, most parents will do everything in their power to help their children.
This was proven recently by a desperate mum who decided to seek help online after she could not solve a mathematics equation for her daughter.
The mum took to the popular Family Lockdown Tips and Tricks where she shared a photo of her daughter's homework and admitted it was giving her a hard time.
"Are there any mathematicians out there who can help with my daughter's homework? She can't remember how to do b) and it has been 26 years since I did any maths." she captioned.
Several people camped on the comments section to try and help the mum and her daughter but despite many attempts, many could not agree on the right answer.
When it got to a tough point, most people who had offered to help suggested the lady should consider using apps such as Photomaths or YouTube.
Some who thought they were right suggested the answer is ''X to the power of 2 over 3'' but the answer
Many suggested the answer is "X to the power of 2 over 3", and while it seemed to be a popular solution, it left many people more confused.
Because of the confusion, some people even started to joke about it with one woman posing;
"What age do they do this? Just curious so i know when its time to kick them out,"
"When on earth do people use these? I am 47 and don't think I have ever had to use these sums in my life?" another one said.
"I did A-level Maths and can’t remember this," a third one said.
The fourth person said:
"If I wasn’t confused enough reading the question I’m now even more confused reading the answers?! Power?!?! 2/3 of an X !!! But what the hell is X?!"
