Students in Australia have been complaining that a question in a recent maths exam presented an unexpected curve-ball that threw many off their mathematical game.
The problem put to them involved calculating the angle created when two 50 cent coins were placed side by side.
The student allegedly posted ‘Fuck You 50 Cent. I never liked your music anyway.’
Mind you, a lot of people are now taking to social media to lambaste the moaning pupils.
This is a HARD maths question? Maybe for the dunces in the Daily Mail. https://t.co/SG6GQklNBq
