    I know this quiz has a flaw - you can equate back with equation That's why, I said don't think too complicated

    Of course!, BD is the radius of the quadrat, so it must be 10 but by mathematical inference, it does not give the same answer ... so there is a flaw in the calculation - perhaps the next quiz is to find out where is the error?

    Is it the new quiz to guess? Maybe he was attracted by the Mathematic question I posted ... coz it has picture in it.

    Study = No Fail
    No Study = Fail

    Therefore:

    Study + No Study = No Fail + Fail
    Study ( 1 + No ) = Fail ( 1 + No )
    Study = Fail

    How can this be? Please explain.
    There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    The error is ...
    Study + No Study = Study (1 + No)

    How can you break up "No Study" to "No (Study)" ?
    You are creating mathematical rules out of thin air and the math logic is also flawed.

    In reality, "No Study" should be negative of "study"
    Hence forth the equation should be ...
    Study + No Study = No Fail + Fail
    Study + (- Study) = - Fail + Fail
    Study (1-1) = Fail (-1 +1)
    Study x 0 = Fail x 0
    0 = 0

    Basically a positive plus a negative cancels everything out la
