# Teachers & Teens Take A High School Math Test

hi I’m Madison and I’m a senior in high school I’m Vanessa and I’m a preschool teacher hi my name is Ted I’m a creative writing teacher I’m Ricardo I’m a senior we’ll be doing a teens versus teachers take the same math course probably gonna fail [Music] I used to be pretty decent at it in high school I got into a calculus class like my senior year but then I decided that since I didn’t need it I would drop the class I would probably give myself a d-plus in math I give myself B at math my best math is probably geometry because I have like an artist mind so like shapes are kind of my thing geometry with like shapes and stuff like that I’m like I just can’t do that’s just it it’s mentally challenging on me you know passing a math class in general is just accomplishment in itself okay if I can like get a C and like even a D I’ll be happy I’m pretty good at long division hopefully I pass I’m ready say your prayers let’s do it all right question number one solved for X square root of 45 minus 4x equals 500 okay no I got this okay I don’t even know where to start with this actually a circle that you know I used to get in trouble for not showing my work all the time and I’m not gonna do it deal with it she’s already smoking me I am confident with the length of the rectangle is 10 feet less than double the width the perimeter of the rectangle is 64 feet what is the area of this rectangle so the perimeter there’s a formula for this like area equals length times width yeah is that right how are you doing are you doing good writer who knows what is coordinate of the point of the slope of the line if yes where did you guys get these questions who slopes I’m looking forward to that I remember doing slope and I remember not doing well with them so hmm my goal is to get at least one right I was like oh it’s slope I know slope rise over run and then I realized I have to put the coordinates into the slope how do I do that MX plus B what does that mean again not though I feel – hold on I’m actually doing kind of okay on this I think I think I got the general idea of this one he pays 60% of the bill it’s a sixty over a hundred and twenty-five more than J nope all of the formulas I remember are failing right now I like this one it just says x equals one there’s no word cylinder whatsoever that’s fine X my favorite question was what figure it out this is literally so embarrassing I am like wanting to tap out but I’m not I’m not gonna tap out yet I swear I used to know how to do this f of X equals 2x squared minus 5x evaluate F of negative 3 is this real math so X minus 3 over 2 equals x plus 9 over 5 oh I can do this okay and then I have two equations that I have to use so this would be plus 15 plus 15 x equals 7 piece the top an out Talon out if we’re doing something I’m doing nothing she’s doing something I’m doing nothing I’m just writing I’m gonna say five dollars and then put a sad face next to it because I’m pretty sure that’s incorrect I’m never coming back to BuzzFeed if they indicated these are right angles or not but they’re probably not right angles I said it was good at geometry I’m a fraud here comes that long division everybody am I looking at close your strong suit you will thrive for long division work together I’m gonna say 6 9 69 [Music] two big fat zero this isn’t an accomplishment like hey it’s better than me how many did I’d even get right I think I just got one too that was that’s so that’s give that too that’s like one and a half yeah it’s close enough counts right I’m gonna say I got two right I thought there would be simpler questions honestly these were pretty tough I do not want to try this again look what did we learn here today not much nothing at all and I don’t know why I did this I’m glad I did this with you though I feel like if I did this another teen or god forbid a math teacher I feel like we could relate we could relate to each other more I’m glad I did this with you because you’re done with math [Music]

So would have been better if they use teachers who actually had study the material, you know math teachers as opposed to a preschool teacher.

30. Tannu Daral says:

That's the math we do in grade 6-8(algebra) plus 10 for geometry part in India🇮🇳

31. Angel Bermiso says:

i would just cry over my paper. lol

32. caleb jaster says:

It really pissed me off when you didnt put the questions on the screen for your viewers

33. Fatima Alhabshi says:

Mom: why didn't you get an A+ in the math final?
Me: I got an A- so, same thing.
Mom: that doesn't answer my question.
Me: Half of the class failed, so, It's fine and that test was hard. Even our teacher said that!

34. Faiza I says:

WHEN SHE COULDNT REMEMBER THE FORMULA FOR THE AREA OF A RECTANGKE I DIED……

the first one was too simple.

37. Maria Alarco says:

This video gave me anxiety just listening to these questions

39. TheRealGeorge Mendoza04 says:

Me screaming at my phone Bc these questions are actually so easy

40. Katrania Xox says:

Who else wants their school to do this to prove that not even the teachers understand the tests???? 😂😞 smh

41. Andrew Chaillet says:

Yo I could’ve easily passed that.. I graduated high school a few months ago and I still remember how to do all that. I wasn’t even in the best math classes

42. sedriensmorgasbord says:

1) x = 5
2) w = 14, l = 18, area = 252
The dinner bill one) \$125 was the total bill
f(x) = (2x)^2 – 5x ; f(-3) = 51 (The precise notation of the problems is crucial to getting the correct answers, and it's sometimes difficult to know how the problem is written based on how they say it. (2x)^2 and 2x^2 give different results. f(-3) = 33 for the latter.)
(x – 3)/2 = (x + 9)/5 ; x = 11
They didn't go over the rest of the questions in enough detail… I'm sad, I wanted to see if I could still solve them all 13 years after graduating high school.

43. Toni Gru says:

This video makes me want to jump off the patio, it's so depressing. This pretty much makes me feel the math I grew up with will never matter; even though i was told " YOU NEED THIS".

I think they picked the dumbest kids

45. LEE SZE HUI JESSICA 3D says:

…is the singaporean/ asian education system way harder than US or is the US education system easier than everywhere else
cause that was like sec1 math, (13 yrs )

46. Michael Fydenkevez says:

Not bring and to do basic math is the equivalent of not being able to read. Yet being illiterate is unacceptable and not being able to do math is almost bragged upon

47. rach danielle says:

all the questions that were read out or could be made out from the video, i could solve them when i was 13. these were way too simple…

48. hunter de kovolt du 01 says:

I don't get the goal of this channel

49. Kartik Pingale says:

Is that Chandler Bing???????

50. Jayati Banerjee says:

Meanwhile Asian students sighing at the difference in our high school difficulty levels.

51. Ana Banana says:

I hate math.

52. Sppike says:

Just a basic math

53. junklex says:

so who else would write an apology note at the top of their test paper before turning it in

54. rohit mynam says:

Dude, those seniors probably studied and took the sat only a couple months prior. The math seemed pretty basic, I would have thought that they would do better

LOL im from sg, and the first qn i answered it immediately within seconds (it was common sense) XD those were like KIDS math tbh.
could easily scored full marks

56. SirHyde says:

Bruh isnt this just sat math and they're seniors in highschool lol

57. Who Are You says:

58. 雷舒曼 says:

These are like 7 grade or 8 grade math quiz to me. And i wonder why they hold a pen like that ?

59. Fahrettin Karaca says:

Omfg i learned this in legit middle school

60. Zachary a says:

I'm okay with the teachers not being good at math – it's not their field of strength and it's been a while since they've touched math. But jesus, the high school SENIORS struggling with simple questions meant for students 5 years younger than them made me chuckle.

61. Arthur Kirkland says:

Everyone saying this is easy needs to understand what it’s like to go without math for a couple of years. It’s my first year without math and I don’t understand anything anymore. It’s hard to retain information and formulas, especially if you were never talented at it in the first place. We get it. You’re good at math.

62. Serenity james says:

Thts so easy its just algebra 1 & 2 and a lil geometry

63. cat cat says:

3:12 that laugh got me

64. The geeky Pottercat says:

I want the paper now

65. •Sweet Smile• says:

3:10 so relatable

66. Pervinca Periwinkle says:

what do u even learn in those 4 years of highschool, i mean…. a simple equation? areas that are solved only by using the formula? percentages? In europe we get out of highschool not only knowing basic math, but also complex math, even if you don't need it for your degree… trigonometry, areas, functions and limits are required, and if you study science, you know everything about derivatives, integrals, equations with a mix of everything (limits and trigonometry), imaginary numbers…gee.

67. Poppy .81 says:

2:03 probably a GCSE paper

68. Danny Lee says:

an asian in math test? bro that too OP

69. Bree the Bumblebee says:

I got a B in math

70. mejai israa says:

I dont take math in English but I'm so intrigued to see the worksheet

71. Maverick Versus Everything says:

Couldn't have said it better: RETURN "I thought they would put math teachers with students"

72. Silvio T says:

Women trying to do math – so cute!

73. breecheesefrebreeze says:

Yall are allowed to talk? They should of put them in a empty classroom with a scary protor to get the full experience

74. Hanest Hưng says:

“Is this real math ?”
No it’s more like Asian math

75. AY says:

If this was realistic, they wouldn’t be allowed to speak and they’d be given a zero for stretching

76. you and i are like my buttcheeks after all the shit that goes between us we always get back together says:

i bet you when they were casting people for this video they were like "no left handed people"

77. Annika Hughes says:

78. Matthew O'Connor says:

post the quiz so we can take it !!!

79. Abby Greer says:

this made me so stressed for school because I literally can not at all do math

80. MistBorn says:

A senior in high school doesn’t know what perimeter is? Those simplification factoring questions with variables was taught in senior elementary and junior high school lol.. American education is way too behind and it shows 😂

81. BlueCryBaby 101 says:

I remember when. I was in school I was the top student in math. But if you ask me now I don't remember any of that stuff. Most likely because I never had to use any of it in my daily life so I forgot most of it. Not everyone is gonna remember something they learned years ago. Especially if there is no repetition.

82. Jaffa says:

As a math major this was very hard to watch

83. Yat To says:

I thought that "Asians are good at maths" is just another groundless Asian stereotype. I don't think so now.

84. Brandy Rose says:

This gave me ptsd from just watching this

85. 82 Kdw says:

dont versus asian in america

86. TM says:

I don’t know but am I the only one that imagines scenarios and just laugh about it??

Me: teacher I know what X equals

Teacher: what?

Me: my current boyfriend

87. Patricia61922 says:

Can you please put up the full set of math questions and answers for the viewers to solve along with them?

88. Britney Spears says:

My math exams are always empty that’s how bad I am 💀

89. Afeefa Naseem says:

I learnt algebra when i was 10

90. Summer Johnson says:

12 year old me could do most of these

91. Moira Ann says:

Where are the other math nerds that really wanted to take this test too? We all need an easy win now and then!

92. KittenGurl 101 says:

They let them talk through the test?! If I were those teens I’d be so mad. Those adults clearly forgot the hardest parts of test-taking, no collaboration and NO reading allowed. If you don’t agree @ my teachers.

Thank you American education system, very cool

94. Alt Y says:

Guys give me the test. I know this lol.

95. erinannelies says:

the education system fails students. educators don’t even know how to do math (unless they’re math teachers). this is such simple stuff, although I’ve taken math through multivariable calculus so maybe i’m a bit biased

96. I’m sorry Im a multifandom fan says:

Sometimes I think about how teachers say the math test is easy
My mind:you just know the answers to all the questions😑

97. OP SINGH says:

These questions were far too easy 😏

98. BIG FASHION says:

Some teachers forget what they are thought too in any kind of subject. Our memories are not stable as we thought it was

99. Cloud of Reverie says:

This is some elementary level math. Are Americans really this behind?

100. Jazz King says:

Easy questions.
