Can You Spot Why This Teacher Failed Primary School Pupil For Answering 5x3=15 In Maths Test?


5 times 3 is equal to 15 right? So why did this teacher fail her pupil for giving the answer to 5x3=15?

The teacher has awarded him a score of -1 in his test regardless of the fact that most of his answers were correct but here is the thing, the student rough workings out show that the student worked out the sum total by writing 3 '5's instead of 5 '3's meaning he wrote 3x5 instead of 5x3, though both gives you 15, it was the way the student worked out that made him/her fail the test.

They have had the same problem on the next question solving the sum 6 times 4 instead of 4 times 6.
