In this challenge, you must examine the image below extremely carefully and notify us if you see anything unusual.
In the popular image, there is a mistake — but can you see it? Is it possible that the error is hidden within the lines of numbers? Is it possible that the error is in the title or the picture’s background?
Take another look at the image before we offer the answer. If you’re determined to solve the problem on your own, concentrate on the numbers and their relative positions. In the image below, we’ve circled the blunder that perplexed the audience.
In the second half of the second line of numbers, the sequence of the digits is incorrect, with number 6 appearing before number 5.
While many people are unable to recognize the error on their first attempt, this is not rare. Because we all know how the right arrangement of numbers should look, our brains are trained to simplify things for us, making it more difficult to identify the error.
Though most viewers can’t unsee the error once they’ve seen it, the majority have trouble seeing it at first sight – especially if they’re going through the figures quickly.
Did you identify the error on your own, without any assistance from us or the comments? Please tell us how long it took you to complete the challenge.
