Can you count how many threes are on the iPhone screen? 15, 19 or 21? I`m lost...

An image of an iPhone screen became an internet sensation last week as thousands of people deliberated over the photo, which was widely shared along with the question: `How many threes can you see in this picture?`

Social networkers came up with the most common answers of either 15, 19 or 21. But which answer is correct?

There are in fact 19 number threes pictured in the image, but there could be 21 depending on how you interpret the question.

Apart from the eight threes in the phone number, there are two threes on the key pad as the number eight button has been replaced. 

At 3.33pm, the time also contains three number threes and the battery power at 33 per cent contains another two.

That totals 15, the answer many social networkers have come to. On closer inspection, however, there are a further four hidden digits, totaling 19. 

Three of the letters in the contact`s name have been replaced with threes and the letter `I` on the number four key has also been replaced.

But many online posts give the answer to be 21, with people seeming convinced that there are a further two threes in the image. The differing opinions come down to the interpretation of the question. Many users have included the bar signal and the wifi signal, both of which show three bars. But whether 19 or 21 is the correct answer is a matter of opinion
