Math test responses

A friend sent me these hilarious responses to math tests. Thanks for sending, D!

Note: I have no idea where they originated (he got an email forward). If you know, let me know and I will credit the source.

Update: Apparently at least some of these were posted on







UPDATE (on March 4th): Apparently, this post got “Stumbled”!! So, to make this blog more useful…

    How did you get an SU ping to show up? Or is that a function of the new SU?

  8. Shripriya says:

    Hey Jonathan, it is a plugin for WordPress called Kramer. It does that. I’ve turned it off for now since my site is getting crushed by SU traffic (which is a good thing 🙂 )

  9. Jonathan says:

    Ha ha! It’s still getting crushed. That’s how I got here. 🙂

    How do you expand (a b)^n ?

    I could do it for n= some integer but n doesn’t seem to be defined.

  16. Shripriya says:

    @ NYAll – The answer is the Binomial Theorem. More details here —

    If n was not defined elsewhere on the page as a specific integer, I guess the teacher was expecting the Binomial Theorem as the answer.

    hey, just cause i saw you asked: all that stuff was sent in to from people across the united states in different colleges.

    @ Ronen – I could only find one of the images on College Humor, but I updated the post anyway. Thanks for the heads up.
