    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!!

    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 . . .

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

    @knitone Your avatar made me laugh, as it seemed to be giving an appropriate look of puzzlement!

    I am afraid it is typical of my expression during staff briefing as I try to work out if SMT are joking.
    They never are.
