Powerball Math Meme facebookFacebookSorry, but this is so, so wrong.

The record-breaking $1.3 billion Powerball jackpot is starting to seep into the world of memes. But one viral meme in particular is plagued by a case of bad math. 

The concept is simple: If Powerball simply split the pot amongst the entire US population, poverty would be solved!

According to the meme's math, $1.3 billion divided by 300 million people would provide everyone with $4.33 million. 

Except, it really wouldn't. 

Everyone would get about $4.33. 

The original meme seems to have originated from an Instagram account named Esteyban, as Buzzfeed notesThough the quote is attributed to a person named Philipe Andolini, Tech Insider could not find any such person after a quick internet search. Judging by Esteyban's other Instagrams, however, it's likely a made-up person the self-labeled "meme-creator" chose for his meme. 

The post has since been deleted and now Esteyban has been posting new memes with a self-deprecating twist:

Esteyban appears to be admitting the math mistake in the caption: "Trying to solve poverty... While getting killed on social media. At least my $4.33 is a start... With everybody's 2 cents I can buy a $5 pizza special and give it out. #kanyeshrug its a start [sic]."

The original meme was also reposted by musician Livesosa, who covered @Esteyban's tag with his own Instagram handle (@Livesosa).

The caption — "WOW!!!!!!! #‎ShareThis‬!" — was taken very seriously: Over one million people on Facebook have shared the meme.

Livesosa knew the math was incorrect. In a second Facebook post he said, "Hope I gave the world a good chuckle this am! Stay positive my people."

The next lottery drawing will happen on Wednesday, January 13, leaving plenty of time for the birth of more memes.
