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

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

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

WHALES ARE AWESOME HAHAHAHAHA

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.

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

ofcourse it's right the mathematical whale knows all

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!)

this is freakin epic!

Haha! That's cute.

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

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.

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

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

I LOVE this.

was that seriously marked right?

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

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

I think a check means it's wrong haha

the below problem may not have a checkmark.

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

Screw this. I haven't noticed the captcha.

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!

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

How is nobody accusing this of being a fake?

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...

Wat a sxc whale!

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

That's a tick not a check.

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?

i like how she gave him the question anyway.

Haha

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

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

...or draw a whale.

teacher is probably japanise

Hry, it's Tristan!

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

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

1 is not a root of f(x)

When in doubt, draw a whale!

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

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

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

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

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

Astronomically Epic Win

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.

whales are the mathematical transition that makes the world go round

I cannot draw a whale better myself.

Failwhale :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

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

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

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

A whale is not fine It's good

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

Eh, he still got full credit

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

JIMMY HORNER

THE WHALE KNOWS ALL!

Fail Whale, lol.

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

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

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

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 a healthy substitute.

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

Apparently a whale is correct as well

FAIL WHALE. Well played, student.

lololollolololoolollolololololololololololo
A whale is fine too.
