A young schoolboy is trending on social media after a video of him answering a simple arithmetic question popped up online.

In the video sighted by, the boy is seen dressed in a private school uniform and standing before a man.

Looking astounded, the boy stood for a few seconds and his facial expression showed he was trying to bring up an answer.

A man standing nearby who referred to the boy as Mensah tried to help him to win the prize money by explaining the question in Twi.

But even that could not help Mensah and he gave a woefully wrong answer. After many seconds of thinking for an answer, the boy said eight.

The boy's answer in the video has stirred many funny reactions on social media and they have all been laughter.
