This student isn’t exactly wrong, but this definitely isn’t the answer the teacher was expecting.

Redditor HouseHoldSheep was grading some math tests recently when he came across a smart ass answer to a generally confusing question. The best part is that you can see the student attempted to figure out the answer, then erased their work and went with this golden response, below.

“Seems like a pretty dumb test question, I don’t blame him,” one Redditor wrote.

Hopefully this kid received credit for the question.
