Every now and then, the Internet is confronted with some seriously puzzling dilemmas.

You know, like is the dress blue or gold?

And who can forget when the world was asked about how the hell would dogs wear pants?

If you found those philosophically enlightening debates pretty delightful, you might want to grab your thinking cap and a calculator. Apparently, there's a new mind-boggling math problem on social media making people lose their minds.

This thing isn't your average type of arithmetic. Instead, this equation consists of flowers because I guess solving math problems with numbers wasn't already hard enough.

The problem shows three rows of flowers that have different values, along with the respective sum of each row.

The first line consists of three red flowers that add up to a total of 60.

The second line has one red flower and two blue flowers that add up to a total of 30, while the third line shows that one blue flower minus two yellow flowers equals three.

The fourth line is where everything goes to hell. It asks you to solve an equation showing a yellow flower plus a red flower multiplied by one blue flower.

Now, this may seem pretty simple -- but there are a few discrepancies with this final line that are sparking a lot of debate over the answer.
