Remember this math problem??

It BLEW UP on Broadway’s Backyard Facebook page (@broadwayonair) last month. It’s reached over 4.1 million people; over 100,000 comments; 6.6k reactions; and 2,607 shares. I’m sure the correct answer is in there somewhere, but it’s too hard to tell. 70, 25, 3, 60, 16. They’re all over the place! So what is it??

Dr. Doiron received his PhD in Physics at the University of Ottawa and has been a professor for 10 years.
