I feel like the answer I want to give is not what they're thinking the answer _should_ be.
my answer is five seconds , but the answer they want is 30 minutes has to be one of the dumbest questions i have seen lately !
I think the solution is simple: waterboarding.

lol
why do they want 30 minutes though? just get a vacuum cleaner and get rid of all the junk in the room. Takes 5 seconds XD
i know it is 30 minutes because of the answer choices given they want the solution to \[\frac{1}{20}-\frac{1}{x}=\frac{1}{60}\] as if that has anything to do with it right to the "bad math" pile
I remember you asking another question similar to this, it was the exact same solution
must be a franchise franchise of math education majors
A franchise destined for Guantanamo Bay?
lol
I didn't write those problems though lol. it's probably some mad person who wrote it and want to torture people x.x !
I don't really understand this solution
why 1/20-1/x=1/60
|dw:1439514833094:dw| gonna try to attempt this wazoo.
why? takes twenty minutes rate is \(\frac{1}{20}\) per minute
|dw:1439514896131:dw|
then rate of destruction is \(\frac{1}{x}\) and if you subtract you get the rate of \(\frac{1}{60}\)
the "why" is a really good question though because none of it makes any sense
|dw:1439514962395:dw| wait whatttttttttttttttttt! I got 40 X(
if they changed the words to "fill up a tank of water" and "drain a tank of water" then it would make much more sense
*lights a candle * *burns problem*
Ooooh I had no clue, so that's what 1/x really meant bahaha they're adding the rate of mess. That's hilarious
Now if you saw the standardized testing in the US...
oh found my error XD
|dw:1439515255171:dw|
it is funny isn't it people who like standardized tests should read one some time
|dw:1439515301070:dw|
@satellite73 If you have time to read something ridiculous that used to be on standardized testing or probably still is somewhere who knows...check this out (part of the english test, not long, but very ridiculous) http://usny.nysed.gov/docs/the-hare-and-the-pineapple.pdf
Lol which animal said the wisest words? That first question blew my mind.
