# Math Riddles: Here we are back with a few more math riddles for you!

*Math riddles with answers!*

What makes math different from other subjects? Unlike literature, math does not come with interesting stories that strike a chord. It does not deal with emotions that we can relate to. Unlike science, the subject does not deal with exploration or understanding the physical world better. Unlike art, the subject does not require one to bring out the inner creativity on paper.

When math lacks all of these, does it make the subject harder to understand? Well, yes. Numbers can get complex at times. And when these numbers come along with algebraic alphabets, signs, complex symbols, never-ending equations, and theorems, it indeed gets difficult to understand.

But hey, does that also mean that math is a dull subject? Certainly not! Math deals with solving real-life problems and answering questions that no other discipline can answer. Moreover, it intervenes well with almost all subjects. That is what makes math a special subject.

Still, doubting math’s ability to be interesting? Well, these exciting math riddles will prove you wrong!
