Primary school kid finds genius way to get around a tricky homework question – and people reckon she’s ‘going places’

SCHOOLED

A PRIMARY school kid has left parents pretty impressed by her quick-witted answer to a tricky homework question.

The young Year 4 student was asked to solve a a series of maths-based problems, including one that would no doubt leave any adult stumped.

The question asked: "Write a 7-digit number that has the digit 6 in the 10,000s place."

But rather than leave the question blank, and potentially lose marks, the quick-thinking kid found a way to answer the question correctly.

She scribbled the number 6,666,666, which technically isn't wrong - and good on her for being able to think outside the box.

The post was shared anonymously on Reddit where it racked up quite the response.

The anonymous parent wrote: "My fourth grader’s math homework. She said, 'This way I didn’t even need to think about it'

People expressed their amusement and praised the young girl for her ability to get around the difficult question - many even commented on her future career prospects.

One person wrote: "This kid has a future in testing any kind of systems or software, or else coming up with rules/policy.

"You always want someone who will think in certain ways to try to break things, or else to figure out how to game something in unintended ways."

And a second simply said: "This kid is going places."

Even a teacher chimed in and said: "I’m a teacher and I absolutely love when kids manoeuvre like this."

Impressed, a fourth wrote: "This kid has either engineer mindset who put efforts as per required outcome and it's accuracy or a corporate lawyer who can find and exploit loopholes in laws for own benefit."
