Most adults are able to count to fifty with no issue. You learn that in Kindergarten, first grade maybe? But many people can’t get this puzzle right! Everyone is missing the number that is missing! Can you??

Ok, ok the answer that you’re looking for is… 32, that’s what’s missing! Bet you’ll see it now if you didn’t get it the first time.

From awm:

Take a closer look and you’ll see the sequence jump from 31 to 33 without a hitch.

Why do so many people miss the missing digit? Because we are so used to the sequence, our eyes fail to find the missing number. It’s like our brains have been trained to look at the sequence at large rather than each number individually.

In a 2013 blog post from, psychologists discussed why our brain misses the obvious sometimes.

What do you think? Was this way too easy?? Or did you completely look it over? Please comment below and let us know.

    So easy. I don’t understand why most people don’t see it right away.
