On Tiktok, the account that goes by @unseenillusions posted an optical illusion image, leaving numerous users baffled to find the correct answer with a question: How many fingers can YOU see in this picture?

The original was posted in September 2021; however, it quickly resurfaced after a user shared the image on Reddit.

The image has left several users scratching their heads over the total number of fingers they can count.

Seeing the picture, your challenge is to find the answer to the question: 'How many fingers are there?'

Are you still counting the finger in the picture?

The picture showed an artificially altered photo of a human hand against a black background that included multiple smaller hands attached to each.

The puzzler must determine the right number by guessing since the image shows so many fingers.

Many confirmed their guesses were correct, while others couldn't remember and simply gave up.

However, some observant people have analyzed the wording of the question about this image. They pointed out that not all parts of the hand are actually "fingers," but also the thumb.

Several users attempted to answer the question: How many total fingers are in this picture? However, the answer left them baffled.

One person said: There are five fingers on the largest hand5 From each of those five fingers, extend another hand with five fingers...5x5=25 From each of those five fingers, extend another hand with five fingers25x5=125 125+25+5= 155

A second wrote: Since when are thumbs not fingers? The first thing you say when a baby is born is: 5 fingers, 5 toes

While a third commented, Can I ask all the people saying a thumb is a finger, so 5 fingers per hand? If it said count the thumbs, would you call the fingers thumbs???? How many thumbs can you count???

Someone else said: 4 fingers per hand; I get 124; everyone is getting a number ending in 5. You are wrong; multiples of 4 can't end in 5!
