Can you solve this elementary school math problem?

The math problem of one first grade student has gone viral due to its complexity. YouTube sensations the Holderness Family, who are known for their 2013 #XMAS Jammies video, shared their son’s math problem on their Facebook page asking fans to help solve it.

“Internet friends: solve this 1st grade math homework” they wrote.

The math problem asks for the student to use the given key, where each letter represents a number, to find the missing letter.
