I'm trying to understand that sentence : " There are certain problems out there in the world who which mathematics cannot predict the solution. ".
I had a work of transcription of a BBC program to do and this sentence came out of it.
I don't understand why
I looked for explanations on the internet but I found nothing (maybe because it is only possible in oral).
If anyone knows why and when we can use this turn of phrase I'd be happy.
Thank you for your time.

"Who" + "which" is totally impossible. There must be a mistake in the transcription, "who" instead of "for", perhaps, as in this sentence :
... if there exist algorithms for which mathematics cannot ﬁnd out whether they work in linear time or not ...

I totally agree with gerold. It must be a mistake in the transcription - ''who'' should be replaced by ''for''.

Thank you so much, I just listened again and actually he says "for", he just doesn't articulate enough.
