My wife and I have had this conversation several times. Being both electrical engineers we are used to not just regular college level maths, but engineering maths.

The first thing we say when we see these internet â??math problemsâ? is they are written either wrongly or purposefully to confuse.

Many times there may be two answers due to this obfuscation and ideally, this is supposed to lead someone to say, â??Wait, what is really being asked here? What actual or physical problem is trying to be solved?â?

Because if all you have is a disembodied equation with no practical application and the parameters are ill defined, then there is no perceived difference between deception and incompetence.

Think about this and how our current legal system is written.
