What I take away from this is that a lot of us would have failed PSLE maths.

What I can take away from this is that when we see "easy" questions, we tend to think trivially. Simplicity is complex.

u do realise the psle question was set with a diagonal across the big rectangle ish to test students to use area ratio, ratio and proportion to calculate?

But they didn't explicitly say that it was a diagonal nor a straight line, so...we are arguing to the limits.

Overthinking a simple question is the most retarded thing one can do. Imagine someone asking a simple yes/no question and the guy launches into a philosophical monotone about the complexities of the universe.

That is exactly what you and a couple of other idiots are doing right now. Making 3 threads thinking you guys are even marginally intelligent AND trying to prove that the question is wrong...?

LMAO. Sit down you terrible idiots.

hmm imo it cannot be confirmed anywhere that QXS is a continuous straight line. since no solution exists whereby QXS is a continuous straight line, we have to assume its 2 separate lines, QX and XS

therefore we are left with both the answers i gave. however the diagram drawn is inaccurate and does not provide us sufficient information on which to accept and which to reject

hence we will never know the final answer as the question does not provide enough information. however it is definitely either 1 of the answers which i provided

It is from simple insights where great discoveries are made. Too bad modern society took away that desire from us. That is why the golden age of mathematics will never rise again.

Every single nobel prize winner had won a prize based on 1 single, simple idea. Think of game theory.

Take a look at his nobel prize winning paper. He got the idea from watching 2 girls at the bar.

3 pages long.
