Hmmmm!

Perhaps not as unfortunate as the sheet titled "***-u Shi-tze". Or something very similar.

did that in about a few seconds.....easy when you look at the odd and even endings of the figures and what being divided by.

b and e have no remainder, the other 4 do!! So 3 and 3 is incorrect. I failed GCE O level maths btw!!

Eh? Only one of them has no remainder!

You do know this is primary school maths you're arguing about?

Am I assuming this is a published work sheet or are they both stupid - publisher and teacher?

Which one - I make it 2, but did it very quickly. It would be interesting if we all did it the same way?
e.g. 16 divisable by 4, 4 divisable by 4 thus 164 - no remainder!

a,c,d and f have a remainder (Odd divided by even, or even divided by odd).

The two even divided by even, you have to look at a little more carefully, But both are remainder-free.

A disgruntled parent put it on Twitter this morning.

Are you sure the workshirt was not called 'Spot the Dilbert Miss Stakes' ?

This is not unfortunate, it's a deliberate 'mistake' in the last question of a test. Those who would otherwise finish too quickly spend ages looking at this and don't become a nuisance.

It's similar to the wordsearch you give to those who finish a test or an exercise too quickly, where there are always one or two words in the list that aren't actually in the grid.

164/4 64 is divisible by 4 so 164 is divisible by 4, as is 9999999999964.
640 or 648 are divisible by 8, as is 99999999999648, but 641 isn't.

Took me a while to work out the correct order . . .

shouldn't that be pig?

Must have entered em in calc wrong, b and e are whole number answers.
