In the mood to test out your brain? Then boy, do we have a tricky lil' treat for you. YouTuber Presh Talwalkar, a math enthusiast who shares a plethora of perplexing brain teasers and riddles with his thousands of subscribers, recently posted a puzzle that'll totally trip you up. The problem originally hails from Problematic Men, a Korean TV show in which contestants battle it out to solve puzzles the quickest, and it's quite the doozy.

The riddle goes a little something like this: if 9981 plus 1601 equals 2957, then what does 1080 plus 9168 equal?

But that's the crux of the puzzle right there.

So what's the secret pattern that helps us solve this tricky son of a gun? I'll give you one hint: you really have to think outside the box here and look at things from a different perspective.
