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.

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?

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 :-) !!"

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.)

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

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.

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

Maybe she pets her "kitten" already? :o

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

Question 3: the relationship is obviously a 3-way.

WRONG! You need to round to one decimal place, you doofus.

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.)

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

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

I can`t believe I actually worked it out. My live is so sad. :(

That`s what I was wondering. :/
