Why Do students fail in EXAMS ...

The Answer is easy.... TAKE A LOOK


8 hrs of sleep everyday takes away 122 days

365 - 122 = 243


Summer Vacations 61 days

243-62 = 182


Sundays in an year = 52 days

182 - 52 = 130


Festival Holidays = 35 days (min)

130 - 35 = 95


Three hours of daily routine, Bathroom etc = 46 days

95 - 46 = 49


Christmas Holidays = 15

49 - 15 = 34


One Hour everyday for Ionworks forum = 15 days

34 - 15 = 19


Sickness days/year = 15

19 - 15 = 4


Movies time in an year = 3 days

4 - 3 = 1 Day


WE GOT JUST ONE DAY TO STUDY , HOW CAN WE PASS ..... BUT WAIT


WE HAVE NOT GOT EVEN ONE DAY , BECAUSE THE REMAINING DAY IS

OUR BIRTHDAY


HOW DO WE PASS MAN?................ THERE IS NO TIME TO STUDY. !!!!

I've seen this bad math before. Amusing. I guess.

Indeed - this is bad math. First, it should be pointed out that students don't have 8 hours sleep a night...They just don't.

Second, you have already account for 8 hours of Sunday, so why did you take it off again? You can't take of 8 hours at the start then minus days which already have 8 hours less. Sickness = random, no one spends 3 hours in the bathroom (if they can help it)...etc. etc.

Plus those 8 hours of sleep are again taken off when you count in the weekends. Bad bad math!

That's the whole point dudes! That's why it's a joke...err obviously if this was good maths, then it would be borne out by experience: i.e. no one would ever do anything apart from the activities listed above.

Oh and who said 3 hours in the bathroom? 3 hours daily routine he said. Sounds about right to me! The time between waking up and getting up, a few mins in the bathroom, making food, eating food, shopping for food, walking between places - it all adds up to the 3 hours per day daily routine.

Can't let you go on this one...

To start, every year contains 365 days (excluding leap years), which makes 8760 hours in a year.

8 hrs of sleep everyday takes away 122 days
365 - 122 = 243
Said differently, you lose 2920 hours to sleep, leaving 5840 hours.

Summer Vacations 61 days
243-62 = 182
But you were sleeping a third of those days, so it's only 41. That makes another 984 hours, leaving 4856.

Sundays in an year = 52 days
182 - 52 = 130
You slept a third of those, so knock off 17 days. And a sixth of those were on summer vacation, so knock off another 9. That leaves 26 days, or 624 hours, leaving 4232.

Festival Holidays = 35 days (min)
130 - 35 = 95
Thirty five days? You must be in Germany... In any case, you slept away a third of those, so knock off 12. You also had a fifth on Sunday, so knock off another 5. That leaves 18, making 432 hours and leaving a balance of 3800.

Three hours of daily routine, Bathroom etc = 46 days
95 - 46 = 49
What the heck do you do in the bathroom for three hours a day? I'm not sure I really want to know... but in any case, you've got to knock off all 52 Sundays, 35 festival holidays, and 61 days of summer vacation. That leaves 217 days, or 651 hours, leaving 3149 hours.

Christmas Holidays = 15
49 - 15 = 34
Say what? I'm calling these included in the 35 festival holidays. No change... 3149 hours.

One Hour everyday for Ionworks forum = 15 days
34 - 15 = 19
Here, you're underestimating! Three a day is reasonable here, with the same parameters as the daily routine. Subtract another 651 hours, leaving 2498 hours.

Sickness days/year = 15
19 - 15 = 4
That is one sick puppy! That's four percent of the year. Still... knocking off Sundays, festival holidays, and summer vacation, four percent of that 217 days is 9 days, rounded up. But you've got to take of the sleep time, too, so make it six days. Subtract 144 hours, leaving 2354.

Movies time in an year = 3 days
4 - 3 = 1 Day
Three days of movies is 72 hours. However, they're going to be randomly dispersed throughout the year, falling on Sundays, holidays, and vacation days as well. So... three days is 0.82% of 365 days, and .82% of 217 days is 1.75 days, making 42 hours. Subtracting 42 from our 2354 hours leaves 2312 hours

WE GOT JUST ONE DAY TO STUDY , HOW CAN WE PASS ..... BUT WAIT

WE HAVE NOT GOT EVEN ONE DAY , BECAUSE THE REMAINING DAY IS

OUR BIRTHDAY
I'll give you this one, assuming your birthday doesn't fall on a Sunday, holiday, or summer vacation. But you did sleep, although it was in eager anticipation of the presents you'd get. So take off 16 hours for your birthday. That leaves 2296 hours.

HOW DO WE PASS MAN?................ THERE IS NO TIME TO STUDY. !!!!
I beg to differ. There are 2296 hours left, allowing for the various rounding I did along the way. That leaves 95 days and 16 hours for you to be studying... so I suggest you get started, and start with logic and mathematics!
I can't believe I just went through and did all that... I guess I'm getting ready for when my kids try that on me [img]graemlins/hehe.gif[/img]

BTW, it all hinges on a basic concept of physics, which is unit of measure conversion. You can't do math across UOMs... 1 dozen plus 1 gross does not equal 2 pieces.

Okay. I'm going to get back to work now

Yes, and we jokingly decided to point out how poor the joke was. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Why students don't pass?

Well because they use their skills on jokes like these and never on their tests.
