The internet is struggling to work out this Year 2 math problem

trending 02/02/2018

NOt going to lie, we feel dumb asf right now.

There's nothing we love more than proving everyone else wrong and figuring out a problem that almost everyone's stuggling with. 

That is not with this math problem.

This week Angie Werner's daughter, who can we point out again is only in year 2, was sent home with some homework that she couldn't figure out and we don't blame her.

Stuggling to work it out for herself, Angie posted the question in the FB group 'Breastfeeding Mama Talk'. Can you figure it out?

"There are 49 dogs signed up to compete in the dog show, There are 36 more small dogs than large dogs signed up to compete. How many small dogs are signed up to compete?"

If you read that around 5 times and still didn't get it, don't worry, neither could we, and neither could anyone in Angie's FB group.

So what is the answer? Well after leaving a note for her daughters teacher pretty much saying 'WTF is the answer!?' she found out it was....42.5!

What type of answer is that, 42.5!? You can't have half a dog...what is this!

In an update though, while talking to POPSUGAR Angie said "the district actually worded it wrong"

The answer would be 42.5, though, if done at an age-appropriate grade

If you're wanting to know how the hell they worked out that answer though, here's how:

49-36=13. 13/2=6.5. 36+6.5=42.5.

Don't worry, we still don't understand how that works either.
