Lol thats a me move right there.
Male 400
lol...dumb kid
Female 71
lol, i would so do that
Female 50
hehe *giggles* that`s pretty funny:D
Female 584
The find X one was better, but I still like this one.
Female 15
haha smart kid
Female 98
Lol funny
Male 41
lol thats a good one
Male 38
lol
Female 39
That`s.....funny. At least the teacher saw the funny side I suspect. I love seeing the stupid answers on exam papers
Female 5
joking is not a good way to get rid of the stuff one has no knowledge about... obviously. :)
Male 1,478
I`ve been doing expanding brackets in maths at the moment. I might try that. The teacher can`t tell me it`s wrong, (mind you she can tell me i`ve done it the wrong way).
i`m goin for the record!
(a.................+...................b)n
Female 61
haha lol what a classic.. i still like the X 1 betah tho.. lol.. maybe if i did that ui wouldnt have failed maths..
Male 2,958
...the symbol didn`t work, but hopefully my explaination got the point through.
Male 2,958
-videogamer, I`ve never seen it written like that. What exactly does the ^ mean?-

I didn`t actually take the time to look at the comment you`re referring to, but I`m assuming he wrote something along the lines of 2^n. In which case the "^" is supposed to show the next number is an exponent (think of it as pointing to where the number would go) so 2^n would be 2&#8319;

Female 139
lol at the people who dont get it
Female 673
Hey, if you don`t know the answer anyway, might as well do something to make it more interesting.
Male 1,129
Wow being a math major this cracked me up.....haha
Female 51
haha!!!
Female 1
Omg, hilarious. I love that!
Male 14
awesome
Male 182
lol
Female 529
Male 46
Overmann ^ means to the power of... since you cant write it in superscript.
Remembering the formula for that seems pretty redundant if you can do binomial expansion anyway.
Male 73
LMAO, i should try that in math class ... along with the `find X` one.
Male 2,057
hmm yes peter`s an idiot
Female 811
What an idiot.
Male 246
i... dont understand how people cant understand...
the problem said "expand", and its math, so its most likely some complex thing... but all he did was add space, and didnt do anything mathematically.
its really not that hard

Thats the joke dummy, he didnt do what he was supposed to he just expanded it and made it bigger

Male 88
sweet. but if i tryed that with my maths teacher my face would be removed. she takes it so seriously.
Male 2,567
Lol
Male 8
yeh find x was better, but still pretty good
Male 587
yes very funny...
Male 138
This one was good but the find x one was better.
Male 2,605
videogamer, I`ve never seen it written like that. What exactly does the ^ mean?
Female 27
lmao
Female 58
I feel smart cos I get it. I feel like a nerd cos I actually laughed.
Female 1,033
that wasnt funny
Female 74
haha, it took me a while to get it but i finally did. what a smarta** :-P
Male 131
he just e x p a n d e d
Female 161
lol funny
Male 359
um okay some people in here need to learn math
Female 1,007
Haha.
Male 1,496
That wasn`t funny.
Male 53
I`m going to have to try that one day. Pretty funny.
Female 100
Silly - I like it.
Female 712
haha.
Female 49
hehehehe great loophole!
Female 1,596
lol u dont get it??
he put space between the letters i.e. Expand
Male 11,739
He`ll think it`s really funny when he`s scraping out the grease traps at McDonalds because he can`t get a real job. Loser.
Female 412
i think i get it
Male 10
Hey, has anyone ever clicked on the scary thing at the top of the homepage? What the hell is it?
Female 87
hahaha!! peter makes me laugh
Female 329
Lol that was awsome! I should do this in math class sometime...
Female 2,035
Ha Ha Ha!
Male 82
Yeah, this one was funnier than the find x one.
Female 272
hahaha i thought this one was more clever than find x :D it cracked me up.
Female 175
lol
Female 546
I`m not a nerd, and I get it.
Male 1,866
thanks nucks fan.
haha i don`t want to hijack this thread, i love how kovalchuck once said
"guys say stuff to me on the ice, i dont understand fully what they say, so i smile and then go score goal"
kovy is definatley one of my fave players.
hahhaha.
Female 104
this is cute i guess the "find x" one is funnier.
Female 943
had to stare at it for 5 minutes til i got it

XD

Female 1,262
Heh, silly Peter.
Male 196
"How can you not know...um...its a pair of boobs isnt it?"

I can only hope you are joking.

Male 2,486
It doesn`t take a nerd to figure it out... If you cant figure it out your an IDIOT.

Expand, look at the symbols and numbers, they`re going outward, like they`re EXPANDING. Derr

Male 3,014
(a^n) + [a^(n-1)]b + [a^(n-2)](b^2) + ... + (a^2)[b^(n-2)] + a[b^(n-1)] + (b^n)

Male 12
Rofl. :D Expand...
Female 8
lol..i did tht when i was tryin to hurry and do sum of my hw b4 we turned it in for class..and my teacher called me a smartass but still gave me an A :-)
Male 36
Haha pretty funny. Good to see the teacher took it in good humour.

But remember people, nobody likes a smartarse.

Female 64
lol.
Female 815
Oh...k...i...um o.o is being 12 a good excuse for not knowing that?
Male 2,605
oumaverick, just out of curiousity, what are your math requirements for college? Mine are Calculus I and Statistics.
Female 2,552
Haha?
Male 223
shizzaster that pic is awesome i laughed alot when i saw kovalcuk point at crosby

How can you not know...um...its a pair of boobs isnt it?

lmao you dirty kid!!!!

Male 1,406
You don`t need to know what expand means mathemetically, you just have to know it doesn`t mean to literally expand.
Male 1,866
lmao.
that was good.
but not as good as the find x one!
Male 571
Should I feel proud that I understood the joke and actually found it funny?
This site really attracts idiots :-D
Male 206
anyone know where i can find a bunch of these jokes?

p.s. as for math.......math makes me want to play in traffic...

thank God i`m finished my math requirements for college

Female 294
um this is ok i guess ?
Male 1,725
hahaha i liked the other 1 better but this 1 was good 2
Female 1,784
why do u have to be a geek or a nerd to get it?your just stupid if you don`t get it. Its a simple joke.
It wasn`t HAHAHA funny, mroe like hehe cute funny :)
Male 206
overmann, he was being a smartass. now whether or not he actually knew the real anser remains to be seen...
Male 2,781
^THE WEIRDASS BABY PICTURE
Male 2,781
OMFG!!! WHY THE HELL YOU LINK THAT PICTURE!!! DAMN I`M GONNA HAVE NIGHTMARES NOW!!!
Male 22
Male 2,605
clumsy13, the formula is actually that of the binomial theorem, which is college algebra.

I wonder if the student knew better and was joking or if he was genuinely stumped. The kicker is that all he had to do was write out the steps of the formula; there was no actual work to be done.

Male 1,882
OWNED again! Man, this guy is good at math.
Female 114
For those who don`t get it, to expand an equation you take the numbers in the brackets and multiply etc so they are out of the brackets. This dude just made the equation look bigger by spacing it out, thus expanding it.

Heh heh, I laughed =p

Male 39
That`s funny if i did that on a test i would get it marked wrong for sure knowing my teacher!
Male 374
Keep em coming
Male 175
funny
Female 72
haha funny
Female 302
hahaha ^_^
Female 23
This is basic algerbra people I thought most educated people would know the answer and at least everyone would understand the joke - whether it be complete crap or not.
Female 20
I love smartasses.
Female 1,071
lol funni
Male 241
Not bad. I should do some of these in my math exams.
Male 181
best part is where the teacher wrote "Very funny Peter"
Male 1,115
Hahahahaha, srry, my nerdy side got it pretty quickly and found it funny.
Male 1,237
you must be pretty dim not to `get it`...
Female 228
hahaha
Female 135
i got nothing
Female 84

Male 1,383
BRAVO PETER! lol, another great one.
Female 1,463
lol gd 1
Male 162
Why not have a pic of the bizzare baby? got any better ideas and i`d love to not hear them :D
Male 75
I think maths is for pussys, they should do real things like erm, farting and burping, yeah, mannly stuff,
Male 132
it is funny because instead of working it out like he was supposed to, he just wrote ect.

yeah...i was wondering why, too. *shudders*

Ooh, my first post, whoop!
Male 3
By `expand`, they meant make the equation have more figures, not make it physically wider. I know, hilarious >:S
Female 284
good but not as funny as the find x one
Male 619
gotta love these students
Male 4,393
o wow :( p.s i got a new pic:)

Listerstorm it got deleted :-(
Male 38
Ha, what a smart ass

Male 246
Ill stop worrying about 1st posts now. i know how annoying it is.

the paper is pretty funny i guess

Female 118

Male 559
