A whale is fine too.

Fear the mathmatical whale!

in that problem, the correct answer is a curved line, in this case the curvature of the whale's "belly" is the correct answer. the only thing the student did was decorate his/her answer with whale parts

At least in Finland a red check means the answer is wrong.

awesome teacher

Actually, the second answer is correct. {+1, +2, +5, +2/5} So the check next to the whale means correct as well. Teacher must have noticed the bottom line of it.

WHALES ARE AWESOME HAHAHAHAHA

Happy whales give you points in a math exam? Holy shit, I'm so going to try this.

If the question was not what the teacher wanted or something like that sometimes teachers will say "omit question 14. Everyone gets points for it, my mistake." That would be a good time to practice your whale drawing skills?

So Is "A Whale" The Correct Answer For Everything?

I just did this because I didn't know what to do with it. Wish me luck.

Wow! Because a whal just totally relates to math! XDD

Haha! That's cute.

Well,if a thermonuclear device can turn into a whale in search of the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything...

Eh, he still got full credit

To answer "how is nobody accusing this of being fake?": 1. It's probably real. He put down the correct answer, he just decorated it a bit. 2. BECAUSE WE HAVE LIVES!

Screw this. I haven't noticed the captcha.

At least he didn't write 'suck my dick fag.' Might not have got a check mark for that one.

It occurred to no one that the picture cuts out the answer line on the right side...

Pi/3.14 = Whale! WHY DIDNT I THINK OF THIS BEFORE!

Original Creator's note: The check meant it was correct. The reason he gave it to me was because we hadn't covered the material in class yet, everyone got that question correct.

was that seriously marked right?

Must've been fake, yet it's epic~!!!

Um....well that's okay..

I dunno... why is a checkmark being marked as incorrect? (Yes, it is incorrect... there's another check on the below problem.) (another note: the CAPTCHA reads "number regrets". weird!)

I had a math teacher who marked wrong answers with checks, that's probably what happened here. Still funny though, lol

Lol it reminds me of my math teacher last year, I would put random answers and still get full points

A whale! lol! I wish my teacher thought whales are as funny as i do!

JIMMY HORNER

I think a check means it's wrong haha

When in doubt, draw a whale!

Guys, the answer is right. Look at the curve of the whales body (on the bottom), solve the equation and its the same line.

this is freakin epic!

That's a tick not a check.

bla bla bla (3,3) for f(x) = 2x^5  13x^3 + 2x  5 = a WHALE. how d freaking hell is dis correct?

With the claSSeS i'm taking next year, I'm going to need to know how to draw whaleS very well....

This guy is smart. He predicted the fail whale well before its existence

A whale is a healthy substitute.

My boyfriend drew this whale, and it is definitely real.

I think this question is a reference from Moby Dick. The teacher recognised the pupils understanding of Quiqueg's opinions on the mathematical equation. Thus being expressed through the whale, the teacher was lulled into a feeling of great pride on the pupil, that they realised the true nature of the zero's between 3 and 3. And I for one am laughing so much I've sprayed watery diahorria everywhere.

A whale is not fine It's good

I get why this is right! The original question was: Show that all the zeros lie between [3, 3] for... Or draw a whale.

Failwhale :D

Hry, it's Tristan!

The check most likely means it's wrong, the one below it recieved a check and that answer is wrong. It should be +/ 1, +/ 5, +/ 1/2, +/ 5/2

Wat a sxc whale!

the below problem may not have a checkmark.

that SO happened in mathmagic land!!! if you go to KSMS and had mrs. chung you will understand.... =D

Well, actualy a graph for f(x)=2x^513x^3+2x5 would look like this http://lmgtfy.com/?q=f(x)%3D2x%5E513x%5E3%2B2x5

Apparently a whale is correct as well

Astronomically Epic Win

whales are the mathematical transition that makes the world go round

You guys know that a check means wrong in iceladn right?

ofcourse it's right the mathematical whale knows all

teacher is probably japanise

CORRECT! We would have also accepted a seal, dolphin, or actually just about any marine mammal

1 is not a root of f(x)

Haha

I LOVE this.

how the fuck is that correct ?? SOMONE TELL ME :P

THE WHALE KNOWS ALL!

Best whale I have ever seen. 10/10 in my book.

I think if i become a teacher I will count stuff like this correct.Any smartass answer thats good enough to make me laugh deserves an A.

its so obvious how he did that if it was an actual exam he put the answer got it right after exam erased answer and then drewa whale DUH

How is nobody accusing this of being a fake?

That is a Beautifully drawn whale...A+!

You see, if you don't know the answer, just draw some random s***

i like how she gave him the question anyway.

Fail Whale, lol.

I cannot draw a whale better myself.

Whale, I guess the teacher didn't SEA that one coming.

Ultimate Fail: When you're not even close to being even sortof correct.

FAIL WHALE. Well played, student.

lololollolololoolollolololololololololololo

...or draw a whale.
A whale is fine too.
