Check out how puzzle lovers reacted to this brain teaser here:

“I think five should go there,” posted an individual.

Another claimed, “It’s one. Trust me. I’m a genius.”

“I’m thinking. It’s one because the top half is multiplication through five and the bottom would just be the opposite so division through five,” expressed a third.

A fourth commented, “It would be one for many reasons.”

“Very interesting. I can make an argument for one and an equally valid argument for 25. I cannot make an answer that works universally. I do find it amusing how many people are positive they have the ‘right’ answer,” shared a fifth.

A sixth chimed in, “If you multiply, the answers are on the button, so why would 25 be at the top? If you divide all the answers, they would be at the top, so the right answer is 1. I’m far from being a genius, but it makes sense to me. I guess.”
