Joe bought 500 apples for 1 dollar each and 400 bananas for 2 dollars each to make a huge fruit salad because he was feeling incredibly hungry that day. How much did Joe end up spending at the Incredibly Expensive Fruit Shop in total? We’re all used to seeing similar math problems pop up in school.

However, what if we were to tell you that these people who buy huge quantities of things aren’t just a figment of the imagination of somebody who prints math textbooks. These people are, in fact, real. They live among us. Your neighbor might be one. Bored Panda compiled this list of people with math problems who were spotted in the wild. So get ready to see some stuff you’ve probably never seen before. Upvote the pics that made you go ‘oh wow,’ and share with your family and friends because you know they’ll enjoy this post.

After scrolling through this list, take a look at Bored Panda’s post about a viral equation that people can’t agree on what the answer is, as well as our post about how a teacher uses LEGO to explain math to school children.

We can’t imagine what went through somebody’s head when they decided to buy 600 bottles of soda, a bajillion bananas, or so many Cheetos that you could comfortably survive in a post-apocalyptic world for several hundred years. While thoroughly impressive (and expensive to boot), the question that pops into our minds is: Why? Were you that thirsty/hungry/bored?

While math problems about somebody named Sarah buying 300 gallons of milk might seem like a waste of time to some, learning math is actually very important. Pi Day writes that learning math helps improve your brain and might even help you make good decisions faster.

What’s more, math helps you tell time: a surprising number of kids (and adults) can’t read the hands on an analog clock, and it’s a useful skill to have, even if we are living in the digital age.

There’s even a place for math in the kitchen — basics like adding, subtracting, multiplication and division help modify recipes to fit the number of people you’re treating to a delicious dinner. Let’s just hope that dinner isn’t going to be a fruit salad made up of 500 apples and 400 bananas.
