Karin Gendi took to TikTok and shared the hilarious moment she gave her clever engineer mates only three minutes to figure out the ‘equation.’
A piece of paper shows two ‘100 numbers’ and a line underneath.
“If you can turn this into two hundred with one line, I’ll give you whatever you want,” Gendi told them.
The three friends looked at each other, as if trying to say: “Is this some kind of a joke?”
Because how in the world can they turn two ‘100’ into two hundred using just one line?
“With one line?” one of them asked.
“Using only one line,” Karen replied.
Another engineer even turned the page upside down and said: “Let’s look at this from another perspective.”
What about you? Have you figured out the answer to this simple math riddle?
When the time was finally about to run out, one of the engineers managed to solve it!
The viral TikTok video has been viewed more than 38 million times and internet users were quick to comment on the post, with one person writing: “You could see the light bulb go off.”
Another wrote: “Suddenly the room went quiet when she brought out the puzzle, true engineers.”
A third said: “Let’s look at it from a different perspective’ haha yep they’ve been in an engineering class before.”

Insert a small line across the 1 of the first 100 to make it ‘too hundred.’
