]]>After getting frustrated with his 3-year-old son’s math homework, Liu, 45, reportedly suffered a heart attack, as per Oddity Central.

The father had been experiencing mild pain in his chest every time he got upset with his child’s homework. However, this one time was extreme. After his son was repeatedly mistaking the same math question over and over again, Liu became heavily annoyed. That anger caused him sharp chest pain and shortness of breath. Not long after, he collapsed.

When the father woke up, he immediately sought medical help at the Third People’s Hospital in Shenzhen. Doctors told him he had suffered a heart attack.

Soon after arriving at the hospital, Liu passed out again. He suddenly started convulsing and frothing at the mouth. Thankfully, the medical staff quickly stabilized him and managed to perform various tests to diagnose his condition.

This was blocking the supply of blood to his heart. Despite being a heavy smoker for years, the cause of Liu’s heart attack was determined to be the intense stress he experienced while helping with his son’s math homework.

What’s more, the medical experts concluded that if the father had not gone to the hospital in time, his serious condition could have been deadly.

Following a life-saving operation, Liu was once again in stable condition. During his recovery, he remained at the Shenzen hospital.

Addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication maybe aren’t your best friends, but can you solve this? The confusing math problem is **15-1(12 ÷ 4 + 1)**. It has all the operators in it, but still, appears to be hard to solve. People are guessing numbers like 11, 18, and 56.

The core of the solution to this problem lies in the two types of operations’ order. PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction) and BODMAS (Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction). The answers may vary, based on the method you were taught when you were little.

Logically, you are supposed to start with what’s in the brackets. There you have **12 ÷ 4 + 1**. The priority operation here is division, then comes the addition. So, you first divide **12 ÷ 4,** which equals **3**. Then you add **1**, and you have **3 + 1**, which is **4**.

As a result, you have the simplified equation **15-1×4**. What you need to do next, is to continue with the multiplication and after that the subtraction. Here you have **1 x 4 = 4**. Therefore, you end up with **15 – 4**, which equals **11**.

This massive Internet confusion is similar to the one where people were fighting over the answer, and it turned out it has not one but two right solutions. The upsetting equation is **8 ÷ 2(2 + 2)**.

But how an equation can have two different answers? Well, again it’s about the two types of order. According to PEMDAS, multiplication comes before division, so the answer should be **1**. However, if you use BODMAS, where division is before multiplication, the answer is **16**. Some assume that this math problem was initially designed to stir confusion.

Admit it, these stumping equations are just another point in the list of many many reasons why we can’t get along with math.
