About This Quiz

Think you are a mental math genius? Math may be a supposedly basic skill that most people start learning at an early age, but that doesn't mean that many people excel at it. After school ends, most people have little reason to use math outside of basic calculations. The world of smartphones makes it easy to have everything you could ever need in your pocket, including a calculator.

There's nothing like a fun mental math exercise to see just how fast and how efficient a brain can be when it is put to the test. If you think you can crush this mental math addition challenge, give it a shot!
