Schoolgirl spots glaring blunder in maths homework and responds with brutal reply

The response was shared on Reddit and has subsequently been shared widely across the internet. Myrah was asked to write an equation for six scenarios, a post on Reddit shared. “Jane has 12 crayons and Kim has 7 crayons. How many more crayons does Susan have than Kim?” the girl – known only as Myrah – was asked as part of her homework assignment.

Her response has been praised as legendary.

“Who’s Susan?” she asked.

“Myrah is going places,” one Redditor wrote cheekily, while a second praised Myrah over her no nonsense response.

Another had a different theory, saying: “‘Maybe it’s a reading comprehension test disguised as a math test.”

And Redditors spotted mistakes in the other questions too.

The first question asked: “There are 8 birds on a branch. There are 3 birds on another branch. How many birds are there in the tree?”

And she correctly replied: “8 + 3 = 11.”

But one Reddit user asked: “Also #1. How do we know those 2 branches are part of the same tree?”

“There are 8 fish in the post. 7 fish swam away. How many are left in the pond?” another question (question 3) asked.

Another Reddit user said: “I’ve got a problem with #3 too. Even if fish swim away in a pond… they’re still in the pond.”

But instead, Pulisic did everything Hazard used to do while he played for the west London side, and continued to get the ball and drive at the defence.

He was taken off just after the hour mark after putting in a brilliant display for Tuchel’s side, and will give the manager a selection headache going forward.

Blues boss Tuchel surprised everyone by naming an unchanged line-up from their win over Southampton on Saturday, with Timo Werner leading the line.

The German missed a golden opportunity to break the deadlock early in the first half, but the striker fired straight at Courtois.

Lewis Hamilton has glaring advantage over Max Verstappen which could sway title fight

Max Verstappen showed he is ready to launch his strongest title challenge yet when he pushed Lewis Hamilton to the wire at the Bahrain Grand Prix. During the gripping final few laps, Verstappen had several nibbles at the Mercedes in front of him but Hamilton crossed the chequered flag first, by the skin of his teeth.
Red Bull were quicker all weekend ahead of the first race of the season but it was Mercedes who took home the honours.

This campaign is set to be the longest in F1 history with a gigantic 23 races penned into the schedule.

Verstappen has never finished in the top three of the Drivers’ Championship and Hamilton has cruised to every title since Nico Rosberg retired following his 2016 triumph.

Seven-time world champion Hamilton has had a key advantage over his rivals in recent years and that could again sway the balance this term.

His Mercedes may not be as quick as Red Bull this time out, but there are other factors that come into play when the going gets tough.

JUST IN: Lewis Hamilton opens up on ‘horrifying’ battle with Max Verstappen

And if Red Bull order him to move aside for Verstappen then it is yet to be seen if he will follow that instruction.

Hamilton knows he will get any assistance he requires from Bottas should the title race heat up, but Verstappen could be out on his own.
