WITH the Easter weekend coming up, it’s time to tackle a challenge that not everyone will get.

How many eggs are in the picture?

Puzzle lovers scratch their heads over what the real number is.

You have to take into account the eggs that are not shown.

So if your first answer was 16, you are wrong.

The best way to find out is to start from the bottom.

Four times four means that there are 16 at the bottom alone.

The next row is three times three, making nine.

And the row after that is two times two, so four.

That just leaves the top one all to itself.

So 16 + 9 + 4 + 1.

That makes 30 eggs in total.
