Math equations that involve addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication are perhaps considered some of the easiest to solve. However, that is not usually the case, as many people have always found themselves sweating over these ‘simple’ math equations.

Are you one of those who sweat? Or are you among the smart lot?

There’s only one way to find out. If you can solve this equation below easily and fast enough, then you certainly need a pat on the back and an addition to the list of smart people.

Here’s the equation. Can you solve it?

It’s a no-brainer.

Well, get your brain to action. Is your brain wondering too much? Hopefully, you have the right answer by now. Write it down but don’t peep to the correct answer down there just yet. The time to view it will come sooner.

This equation aims to tease your brain a little and test your speed as well. While you’re still wondering whether you got the correct answer or not, let’s have a look at some of the benefits of a brainteaser.

## Why You Should Have More Brainteasers

• Reduced stress levels – Getting solutions to puzzles has a resultant therapeutic effect on your brain and body. It makes your brain cells relax, thus reducing stress levels.
• Works on both sides of the brain – You need both sides of your brain active when solving brainteasers. The right side that controls creativity and the left side controls analytical and logical thinking.
• Improves your Intellectual Quotient (IQ) – Doing challenging brain teasers can improve your IQ by about four points. This comes about after it improves your concentration, logic, problem-solving, and spatial reasoning abilities.

You should fully enjoy all of these benefits every day by making it a habit to solve puzzles.

Now that you know the benefits of a brainteaser let’s find out if you solved it correctly.

## The Solution

But how did it come by; you may ask?

Beginning with the multiplication, 60 x 0 = 0

This leaves the equation reading: 60 + 0 + 1 =?

Making the additions: 60 + 0 + 1 = 61

Hence the correct answer is 61.
