Listen up, people.
5 + 5 + 5 is NOT 15. Got that?
A third grade maths test on Reddit has sparked an absolute sh*t-fight. Names are being called. Insults are being thrown. IQ levels are being questioned.
On this particular maths test, a student was asked to work out the solution for 5 x 3. The student showed the answer of 15, and that they reached the answer by adding 5 + 5 + 5.
The teacher marked it wrong, and wrote ‘3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 15’.
But it didn’t stop there. The student had also been asked to draw an array (a systematic arrangement, like rows or columns) to solve 4 x 6. They drew six rows of four marks, and answered 24.
According to the
anal teacher, it should have been FOUR rows of SIX marks, which equals 24.
