It's a maths question meant for five year olds, but adults on Twitter are having a hard time deciding on the correct answer.

The confusing question asks you to study a number pattern and fill in the missing numbers...

Here are some of the responses to the question...

According to Gordon Burgin's Puzzles, the puzzle is actually known as petite circle sums.

"The number within the four sectors of the outer circle is equal to the sum of the three numbers next to its sector," he explains.

The numbers in the circles can only be one to nine and a number can only be used once.
