Skip to comments.Is this Common Core math question the worst math question in human history?

There are also traditional word problems. Twitchy has found a word problem that may be the most egregiously awful math problem the Common Core has produced yet.
Take a look:
15. Juanita wants to give bags of stickers to her friends. She wants to give the same number of stickers to each friend. She's not sure if she needs 4 bags or 6 bags of stickers. How many stickers could she buy so there are no stickers left over?

Maybe Juanita needs to buy a couple of friends?
How can you possibly solve this if you don’t know how many friends there are or how many stickers per bag?
“How can you possibly solve this if you dont know how many friends there are or how many stickers per bag?”
There you go, being rational! ;)
apparently the answer to these types of questions is always 6 or something... I have no idea... lol
The number of bags doesn’t matter. Juanita needs to kill the rich kids who already have plenty of stickers so she can give them to the people who really deserve them.
42, of course.
i’m wondering how I knew her name would be Juanita before I even read the question.
“42, of course.”
LOL! Yes, indeed the answer is always 42. :)
(For those who wonder, it’s from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” — the answer to everything is “42”.)
The future of Common Core;
there are no answers, the solution is for congress to grow a pair, and my only comment is ‘what else would expect from this administration?’
Sheesh, they could skip the words and make the problem a LOT simpler. “X + Y = 10. Solve for X.”
Juanita better put some ice on that.
then it would make sense.
That’s the funniest damn thing I’ll read this week.
Well Duh!.... she needs 6 bags of stickers... because as soon as she starts giving away free crap, she will get more friends.... and those new friends will make sure she doesn’t have any left over... And when she runs out of stickers, Juanita will instantly become a stingy racist homophobe tea bagger because she won’t go buy more stickers for everybody.
