A photo that shows the math of the Powerball winnings divided by the population of the United States went viral earlier today but people soon realized this math was wrong.
The image appears to have gone viral after a Facebook user named Livesosa, an Arkansas-based musician, posted the meme on their page.
The picture reads:
U.S. & World
Powerball 1.3 Billion/ U.S. Pop 300 Million = Everyone receives 4.33 mil
Poverty Solved! - Philipe Andolini
Since the posting, Livesosa updated a new photo with the same text over a picture of Steve Harvey captioned: "Hope I gave the world a good chuckle this am! Stay positive my people."
If the Powerball winnings were to be divided across the United States, each person would receive $4.33. (Note: $1.3 billion divided by 300 million = 4.33)
Some people have made parody images of the original post:
