Zury Tlapanco Reyes, who hails from Mexico, is one brilliant young lady. The eight-year-old was crowned the Grand Champ at this year's International Mental Arithmetic Competition, which was hosted in China.
According to Upworthy.com, Reyes managed to solve a staggering 70 mathematical problems in just five minutes using only her brainpower.
Not only did Reyes solve all the problems in minutes without the use of a calculator, but she did not get one answer wrong.
The young maths prodigy told local media afterwards that it was her first time competing at such an event on an international level. The championships took place earlier this year in July.
