A little boy's mathematical skills have gone viral on the internet, as people cannot believe how a 2-year-old can solve such big equations with ease.
Kids have the adorable power to make anything appealing. Dev, who goes by @devanlovesnumbers on social media proves this in spades as he makes millions of people fall in love with math, showing his mind-blowing skills in the subject. Math, the bane of many people's existence for some reason, looks beyond charming when little Dev begins to solve it. His parents regularly show his brilliant work on social media, earning him legions of followers. In this video, the boy is going through missing number equations as if they are a piece of butter. Seeing the focus and joy on his face, no one can help but cheer him on from the other side of their device.
The whole thing, along with being cute, is also surprising. He is just two years old and for him to go through these equations with such ease is a miracle in itself. The boy solved the first three equations with no second thought. In the fourth one, which asked, "150/_ = 2" he faced some difficulty. After some pause though he came to the right answer which was "75." The next one, "256/_=16" also invited some pause, but he went through this hurdle as well with the answer of "16." All the others were a breeze for him.
The boy was not only giving correct answers but also very particular about his work. He was organized both in his performance and pace. As he finished the whole exercise, the boy immediately turned to his father and began clapping. Both he and his father uttered at the same time, "Good job." The boy, as his username suggests, loves numbers and has many other videos where he is putting on display his master-level skills. In this one, he is handling the multiplication table of 15 like a pro. The individual who has prepared the assignment for him has shown no mercy and has given a mix-and-match system. Still, the boy confidently solves all of them. Seeing him in action, many viewers at home are definitely slaying their math fears.
The comments section was head over heels in love with the kid and his talent. Seeing the boy's talent, @ms.sweetpeach34 put up a request, "Devin should have been my math teacher." @stalagmite7 complimented Dev and commented, "He's already several years ahead of his age. This is amazing." @dogmandollars wrote their opinion on the whole thing, "I think he just sees the answer in his head! True genius!"

Many other creators on the platform are also in pursuit of making math interesting. One of them is Kyne from "Canada's Drag Race." The drag queen has multiple videos on her platform explaining to people the ins and outs of this difficult subject. Through her social media, she is able to combine two of her favorite activities: drag and teaching math. In her interview with The Pink, Kyne talked about the importance of the subject: “[Maths] is relevant to all of us, whether you’re a drag queen or a scientist,” said Kyne. “Maths impacts all of our lives and there is a need for lots of diversity in STEM.”
