Cats have helped people throughout history from keeping them warm and happy to keeping rodents away. In the world of physics, cats have played a major role in quantum physics with the thought experiment known as Schrodinger’s Cat where a cat may be alive or dead at the same time.

Now through the help of Schrodinger’s Cat, scientists have discovered a possible solution to a centuries-old math problem that was once thought to be impossible to solve. That means a cat may help solve a tough math problem, making cats even smarter than most humans.
