Short Bytes: The Victorian Certificate of Education’s (VCE) Further mathematics question has reportedly baffled the Australian students. The 50 cent question asked the students to calculate the angle between two adjacent 50 cents. Is it really that hard?
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) gave a question to the students appearing for the Further Mathematics exam that required them to find the angle between two adjacent 50 cent coins.
Read the question carefully.
Finding angle ‘X’ is the reason that led many students to question their brains, some exploded their frustration on Twitter while one of them even dissed the rapper 50 Cent on Facebook for the difficulty.
frankly youd have to be bloody victorian to be baffled by this very easy bit o’ maths https://t.co/wFBt8fo0S4

Well, as a Maths Methods, not a Further Maths student this was a cinch, but I get why people are getting stumped https://t.co/SQIcQDAtin — Angela (@Angelayang) November 2, 2015
Yes! I can still solve Year 12 maths questions. F *** you Alzheimers. https://t.co/qa7iSo9wLe

Are kids really this stupid these days? https://t.co/Z1PNDkzqK5 — Ed Trinh (@ed_trinh) November 2, 2015
But, is the question really that difficult, that the students who were appearing for Future Mathematics could not do it!! Well, you read the question. Let’s see how fast do you give the answer.
P.S. It took me less than 20 seconds. Maybe because I am an engineer :P
