    Link: Student Illustrates His Own Math Test - Hey teacher, if you don`t show the kitten in your dumb math problem, I`m going to take matters into my own hands.

    As much as I laughed, the captions dumb. The kitten is clearly labeled. Simple math here

    What if the girl really liked kittens and decided to pick it up to pet it before the teacher wrote the rest of the problem?

    I must be dumb...I have read that question multiple times and don`t see any info describing where the girl and kitten are located..I can only assume they are in the building, at which point the ladders are useless to determine anything..right?

    *puts on half-moon glasses*

    peanut: Girl is defined as G and kitten K, which are both marked on the diagram, G above K.

    MightyPeanut, you must be; point G (see the G in Parentheses? ) is the girl, and point K (again, look in the parentheses) is the kitten.

    answer is:

    sqrt(24*24-16*16)-sqrt(20*20-16*16) = 5.89

    it does say the girl and kitten are marked `G` and `K`. so that narrows it down

    Answer 1 - Depends how tall the girl is at full stretch.

    Answer 2 - 44m less her height at full stretch. This is how far she will have to travel to get to the kitten (assuming she cant scale vertical walls like spiderman, in which case she wouldnt need the ladders.)

    Wow, some of the adults below me were able to solve an equation testing a 12 year olds ability to learn maths. To each of these people I say "Go You, have a smiley face :-) !!"

    That answer deserves extra marks for being correct in a different way.

    Nerds? It`s only a very basic application of Pythagoras` theorum. Hardly nerd-level stuff.

    Also...can you get a 24m ladder that just leans against a wall like that?

    this is what happens when 12 year olds get on reddit, they think they`re clever

    A train leaves a station travelling at 30mph. two hours later a second train leaves the same station travelling in the same direction at 52mph. Without thinking of good or evil, show me your original face before your mother and father were born.

    I`d be about 24 m away from the kitten, cause there`s no friggin` way I`d go climbing a ladder nearly eight stories tall, especially when the base is 52 feet from the wall!!

    @slturner
    That is the correct answer. Acrually, big tits is the correct answer to ALL math problems. Just another one of those well known math anomolies we hear about.

    Actually, I think carmium`s answer is the most accurate. Theres no way either ladder, particularly the bottom one, wouldn`t just slide out. Draw it accurately and you`d see.

    Everyone who thinks math is useless shouldn`t use any products that were made using it. That is you should not use anything, because math is everywhere.
