Math illiteracy on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”
The contestant, the studio audience, and the online audience all got this easy math question wrong.
I don’t think this is so much a reflection on any of them, as it is on the horrible state of math education in this country. If this had taken place in Norway or South Korea, I think the contestant and both audiences would have gotten it correct.
When not knowing Math can cost you $15,000
