Meet 10-year-old Boy Who Solves Maths Faster Than Calculator (Picture)
A 10-year-old South African boy, Sibahle Zwane’s mesmerising exploits have gone viral on social media.
Zwane has the amazing ability to answer complex arithmetic questions faster than a calculator and in seconds.
He also lived up to the hype when he was featured in a quick video on BBC recently.
According to TimesLIVE, the Grade 4 pupil charges just R2 for every correct answer he provides.
His mom, Mbali Zwane, said he makes up to R200 a day.
Ms Zwane, a 28-year-old, single and unemployed mother of two, says his gift was first picked up when he was in grade two. She said his teachers told her he had a unique ability with numbers.
She has applied for scholarships to take him to an institution where his talent can be developed.
“I just see the numbers in my head. I like numbers more than anything else. In the meantime, he’s making good money from strangers who are blown away by his talent, proving that he has a good business sense as well,” he told TimesLive.
His mum said that he is generally less focused on other subjects and often gets lazy doing them, but not with numbers.
