Rylan This Morning Maths Question

Rylan Clark-Neal is hailed as nothing short of a GENUIS after answering this tricky maths question posed by a child brain box.

Fans were left gobsmacked and totally amazed when Rylan and co-host Alison Hammond were put to the test by an intelligent 12-year-old child prodigy boy on This Morning.

Joshua, who is due to appear on new Channel 4 show Child Genius was on the show with parents Kelly and Tim, unsurprisingly both teachers, to chat about how their son who has an IQ of 145 means is within the top 0.1% of the country and is officially a genius. 

On the show Joshua had Rylan and Alison perform a spelling bee, translate Japanese phrases and solve maths tricky problems. After sucessfully translating a standard Japanese greeting Rylan went on to impress. 

He was asked to solve the question 

If A = 20, B = 5 and C = 42, what is the value of B(C-A) - 11? (Answer Below) 

Rylan solved the problem almost too quickly prompting Alison to say she thought he's been given the answer by the show's producers but Rylan asked them outright to reassure Alison that he hadn't in fact cheated saying, 'was I given the answers?" to which they replied a resounding "no!" 

He's gone up in our estimation, as if we couldn't love him any more!

(Answer = 99)
