It's not been an easy year for anyone, especially school and university students.

So one dad thought he would lend a helping hand to his stressed-out son as he completed his studies.

The teenager was currently in the middle of completing his homework for his maths A-Levels.

And soon after the parent asked what he could do to help his son, he instantly regretted it.

After seeing his homework, the paper looked as though it was nothing but a mash-up of foreign numbers and words.

But it was actually a number of tricky mathematical questions which needed to be solved.

The baffled dad thought it was only right to share the paper on Facebook, in the hope that others would feel the same way.

He wrote: "Are you worried about the stress on our children that schooling during Covid brings?

"Are you having to help your kids with homework?

"We asked our son whether there was anything we could do to help with his maths (I did maths A-Level once upon a time.)

"He handed my wife this to scan and submit."

And the dad jokingly added: "I'll mind my own business from now on…"

Fortunately for the parent, others were totally blown away by the complexity of the maths equations.

One wrote: "How old is your son? 44?"

Another added: "I thought it was shorthand."

A third commented: "I came first in my year for A-Level maths. I can barely assist my nine-year-old these days!"

Other parents joked the paper was as confusing as this year has been.

While some didn't even know where to start, a few other Facebook users went as far as saying it was trigonometry.

One said: "Trigonometry. I tried to help my son with this the other day.

"Knew the equation but had forgot how to work a scientific calculator to actually get the answer."

So do you have any idea what's going on with these equations? Let us know in the comments below…
