AnEnemyStando

100, meaning you need more than 1 per second to even survive. I'd die.


spyson

Even when I was at my best at this in 5th grade, you'd have to do it perfectly with extremely fast handwriting.


swingh0use_

We had to do these as math drills when I was in the third grade. You couldn’t move up to subtraction unless you completed addition with 100% accuracy. This one day, though, I knew I got every one right. I was psyched bc math was always my worst subject. But then the peer marking my test told the teacher that I wrote the letter B instead of the number 13 for one of my answers, and my teacher took her side. I never moved up. If you’re still out there, Katie, you suck.


Wah_Epic

Katie is a fucking asshole


jlucchesi324

Why the fuck would you write the letter B as a response to 5 + 8? Context. If you wrote a squiggly line that was clearly a vague cop-out, I get it. But that's so stupid. I hope Katie joins Squid Games, gets the umbrella honeycomb, and doesn't learn any tricks to hasten the process. But we should also be upset with the teacher (Il-Nam) who allowed this system to thrive. Katie (Sang-Woo) is just a symptom. [Yes this us mostly sarcastic lol]


Lankaner

5 mins and most of us can get out alive, I'd be shivering and feeling too numb to hold my pen


akaispirit

I got this! -trips up on 12x12 and dies-


jesaea

LMAO ME WITH 8×12


TheDavyJones34

Anything with 0 is definitely a 0 so that saves you a lot of time


tinkletinklehoyyy

Why are you getting downvoted??? there’s nothing wrong with what you said LMAO.


TrueBlue98

because it doesn't practically save enough time lol


CaptainTripps82

The problem is still that it takes more than a second to simply write the answer, let alone think and solve the others


AndreRocks

“Why are you booing me? I’m right!”


UncoolSlicedBread

That’s what I would do first, find all of the x0 and x1 problems first and shave off time. Maybe even the x9 because then you just multiply by 10 and subtract whatever and that just feels quicker. Edit: People apparently hate coming up with a plan.


FelicitousJuliet

In 60 seconds I think this would kill you. ​ It's good on a regular math test (skip the ones you don't know immediately and come back), but in 60 seconds you'd waste more time scanning for the empty spaces you left behind than you would just answering it left-to-right top-to-bottom.


UncoolSlicedBread

I’m going to try it tomorrow, I bet it takes me 60 seconds to get through 3-4 rows


FelicitousJuliet

I did 5 rows in the 60 seconds on my first attempt. Mentally. Without writing anything down. I think you could practice until blitzed through at 1/second and complete it verbally by saying the answers in order, but I don't think anyone would survive it blind or in 60 seconds.


griddlepancakes

Scanning for the ones with zeros slows you down, plus you’d have to go back and scan back through to get the ones you miss. It takes up time to look for specific ones like that. It was my original strategy as a kid and I would barely get 50-60% done


Candycoatedmuffin2

Just give me the gun let’s save everyone some time.


TheDavyJones34

We’ll add 4 seconds to everyone’s time for your sacrifice


Candycoatedmuffin2

I want my number discontinued in my memory.

Chepuf

bro 1 minute? i dont even think its possible to write that fast lol


fsfowrm

Yeah, how are people still not getting this. The math is the easy part. It’s the writing that would fuck you.


DreamedJewel58

Your hand would have to move before you even realize what number you’re writing


HankusHillus

Yep, went to school for a math heavy degree and printed this out (cuz I’m bored at work), no problem with the math but only got like 60% through. And that’s writing in bullshit chicken scratch that I’d probably get killed for anyway.


Apprehensive_Joke_73

try it. I failed at 71


Rainsocket

Why don’t you do it then and prove yourself wrong?


M6sterOid

That's 1.67 operations per second. no way


VirtualPartyCenter

Considering there are a few x0 and x1 questions those could save an incredible amount of time if you went and filled out all those easy ones quickly. Then you’d have extra time for the other ones

ironzombie7

Impressive assessment of the challenge. You even considered the likely cramps


pussymic

The issue is the slow calculations for me not the hand writing lol


Madamescorpio7

No, it depends on how your brain sees patterns.


Kirates5

Let's not forget the stress that would hinder your ability to calculate


TheDavyJones34

If you’re a 4th/5th grader in the United States education system it’s entirely possible.


dae_giovanni

I'm not a 4th/5th grader in the United States education system.


TheOneWhoWil

Nope. I am an American. Nope. Doing the math takes infinitely less time than writing.


prazulsaltaret

> If you’re a 4th/5th grader in the United States education system it’s entirely possible. In 1 minute? Bullshit.


jackcatalyst

It's based on the idea that kids just memorize all the times tables up to 12 there isn't any work involved.


ozarkslam21

Yeah the math isn’t the problem for me, it’s the writing. I don’t think I could write 100 random numbers in 60 seconds, much less the correct answers here even if it is just rote memorization.


Rude_Jello_377

Fucking Americans thinking knowing their times tables is a flex lol


crastle

Even so, I would think that it would take more than a minute to write all of the answers.


ALF839

The math is extremely easy, writing multiple number per seconds is not, it's impossible for most people.


griddlepancakes

Yep it became a reflex


Stormdude127

I probably could’ve done this in 4th grade, but a minute is pushing it. We did this as a warmup activity everyday in my SAGE (gifted) class. We had races to see who could do it the fastest. It’s just memorization. I probably couldn’t do it now though because I always forget the higher multiples of 12


TheLilChicken

I work with 4th/5th graders. This is very bullshit


diamond_lover123

I used to be a 4th/5th grader. Can confirm.


NotEvenMav

Was able to do this 2nd grade of private school education in America it is entirely possible for a fourth or fifth grader


m4_semperfi

No you weren't. I don't understand how people are not recognizing how short a minute is. You have less than a second to read, compute, and write each answer. Even if you have them all memorized, that's physically impossible for a child to do.Schools aim for 3 minutes per 100 problems, anything under is good. Advanced kids probably got around 2 minutes give or take, but never 1 minute or under.Here is a representation of how fast you would have to write each answer Won't let me post video link so go through here [https://pastebin.com/PVHk9CdL](https://pastebin.com/PVHk9CdL) 100 numbers, 60 seconds, and that's without even doing any math or writing...


griddlepancakes

Yeah we would do them weekly and kids in my 1-3 grade class would regularly finish, once I got the hang of it I was able to do it every few tests (nebraska public school)


tri-trii

I’m in the U.K. and we did these all the time, started with 25 sums and when you got them all right in the time you would move on to the next ‘stage’ with more sums or division instead. We had this one kid who would move on every couple of weeks and in the end the teachers would write their own out sums out for him because they didn’t have any more of these pre-made ones for him to do Edited to add: this was Year 6 in England, ages 10+11


TheDavyJones34

It’s really all about memorization. Not everyone in a class would finish but there would be multiple people in my class(including myself) that would finish and flip the paper upside down


SacreligiousBoii

Still BS, when I was in elementary we got 50 questions to do in 5 minutes, not 100 in a minute. It'd honestly take most people a more than a minute to literally read the answers if it was given, let alone you're apparently supposed to solve and write them.


MrDurden32

Ok let's see it OP, record yourself. If you could do this in 5th grade it should be easy for you now right?


griddlepancakes

The paper flip so everyone else still working would know you’re faster 😂


TheDavyJones34

Exactly lol it was literally a mini hunger games once a week. Who could get everything 100% AND flip the paper over first. Shit was crazy


griddlepancakes

It was the best feeling when you did it for the first time! That was probably the happiest id been doing math lol


DiscoFish420

I'm an engineering student and I could not do this


_amethyst

Tsk, tsk, should've been a 4th/5th grader.


FelicitousJuliet

Even if you're fast enough to tell each number at a glance, you have to write them down too, with a gun to your head. ​ I don't know any 4th or 5th grader that solves 100 problems in 60 seconds with writing.


M6sterOid

yeah right. Simply writing the answer will take me 1s


alphadeeto

I finished this in 1 minute WITHOUT writing the answer, and barely finished half of it when I tried writing it in a paper. The writing part takes more time than figuring out the answer.


TellianStormwalde

When I was that age I could have absolutely done this no problem, I think now I’d be closer to the 1:30 mark. Though none of the games gave you this little time, and none of them really hinged on you having any formal education. So I doubt this would ever be one of the games anyway. I think I’d be more likely to succeed if it weren’t the first game, as I’d hustle more knowing what the stakes are.


SidDatKid

memorization and quick thinking can help ngl... especially if the question is a x\*1 or x\*0 but can also be useful in simple ones like 5\*5 or 10\*10


Icy_Ad8122

Even if you spent a single second both thinking and writing out the answer, you’d still have 40 problems left by the time the countdown ends. You’d practically need to be superhuman.


Apprehensive_Joke_73

tried it to do more than 60, I did 71 so thats a victory ig


anngelblair

just shoot me now, id definitely say that 11x0 is 11 if i’m being rushed like that


TheGuava1

Can’t get any wrong? Okay easy, I’ll just put 8 on the first one and call it quits. Didn’t say anything about having to finish it in the minute, just said I couldn’t get any wrong.


bigyeehaw90

Sang-Woo is that you? 😳


OzZVidzYT

Word ^


decentish36

I mean it’s not really solving the equations that’s the problem in this one. It’s writing down 90 numbers in 60 seconds


hotstepperog

There’s a 100. I can’t write that fast.


KozzyBear4

Clearly not enough time. We would do these with 5 minutes back in school... Which is still only 3 seconds per.


pautpy

I don't know about doing it in 1 minute, but these worksheets brings me nostalgia of 4th grade when I met my first nemesis, *Chihiro*. He would finish these front and back-sided sheets first about 60% of the time, while I would finish first 40% of the time, usually getting everything right. It was top 10 anime rivalries for sure. You were a worthy opponent, Chihiro.


toolsofpwnage

atleast the maths teacher guy would ace this


prazulsaltaret

I can ace it just fine it's the 60 second limit that makes it almost impossible.


FelicitousJuliet

I got halfway through, even with freezing on 7x9, maybe a few seconds over but the games did give a few seconds for the announcement too. ​ And that's with knowing stuff like 12x12 and 9x9 at a glance and finding anything with the number 11 in it (even 11x11) easy. ​ 2 minutes would still get me shot if the guards are particularly anal about it, but I might get in under the wire. In a life-or-death situation I'm pretty sure 3 minutes would be too little though. ​ If it was the 5 minute game timer I'd be fine.


griddlepancakes

I have a vivid memory where I was on the last one (was the very first time I did) I got a really bad nosebleed all over my paper


Ravenhunter_

Nooo I felt so bad for him 😭😭


bigyeehaw90

Man I wish we saw more of him. He was such an interesting character to me and the actor did a good job as well


Odd_Mine7269

I know all but that would take longer then a min


prazulsaltaret

I don't think anyone can do this in 1 minute.


TheMeanGirl

You could if (and only if) you practiced for a while before. You have less than a second each... no time for computation, just rapidly scribbling down answers that you’ve memorized.


fire_dagwon

Again, the math itself is not the issue. The issue is that no human can write down their numbers fast enough in one minute. Go ahead and try yourself if you don't believe me.


Rainsocket

The fact that OP thinks that not only is this possible but that it is easy for children shows extreme delusion.


FelicitousJuliet

They seem to be under the assumption that this is the height of private education with a dedicated teacher where you did one of these every day without fail until you don't even have to see the worksheet to fill it out perfectly and have superhuman penmanship.


Mr_Kachow_95

Fuck bro not 4th grade again


ramenrami22

The questions r really easy but the timing might be too short


Clash_OfClans_noob

nobody except sang woo graduated at SNU…


ironically-correct

That’s over 1.5 solutions per second. That’s easy if you can just say them out loud. If you actually have to write them down it wouldn’t be enough timr


prazulsaltaret

> That’s easy if you can just say them out loud Record yourself saying all that in 1 minute


Naevos

as someone whos decent at math, i just tried recording myself saying it outloud. it took 30 seconds for two lines lol


Some_College_Kid13

I felt pretty confident but got stuck on 8x12 and lost some time. Finished at 1 min 12 sec. Tell my family they're just ok.


fel124

god damn those 12 times tables still screw me over to this day


Ok_Preparation6692

i decided to time myself and try it and i got stuck at 11x12 and imagined myself getting shot


KlausBing

Multiply it by 2 and add the result to 10 times the number


ChaotikJoy

nobody's going to make this it'd be a slaughter


tuotuolily

come on 60 seconds isn't reasonable give me 90


StfdBrn

Okay so this thread got me curious as to whether this is possible or not. I tried it myself and couldn't even get past 6th row, albeit I didn't have the multiplication table memorized. My conclusion is that this is impossible to complete within a minute, and this is why: Try writing numbers from 1 to 100 within a minute. 80 is as far as I can go in an almost illegible hand-writing. It is very difficult to write hundred numbers within a minute to begin with. I just can't imagine how it would be possible to read, recall/solve and write the answers to hundred of these.


m4_semperfi

>80 is as far as I can go in an almost illegible hand-writing Yes, I just tried this before I even saw your comment. I wrote down 99 and 10 over and over as fast I possibly could, hand writing was pretty bad, and I could only get to 80-something before the time ran out. So not only do you need to factor in doing math (or memorization, which requires reaction time), but you need to do even more numbers, 80 won't cut it. Everyone in this thread acting like it was possible as a kid is delusional and misremembering their childhood.


KitKat_J

Reciting the answers is possible but writing them down is near impossible.


btokendown

All those years of being forced to memorize multiplication tables by strict desi parents will pay off but at least make it two minutes


jackcatalyst

Oof not knowing my 11 and 12 times tables anymore would get me killed. I also sucked at these as a kid. Took me a year to get through the plus minus sheets.


ozarkslam21

1.67 answers per second? I think my mind can work that fast but my hand can’t. I don’t think I could even write down a random number in each spot there in 1 minute.


Coffeeman314

Writing time alone will kill me. 2 minutes and it's easy


[deleted]

I'd get to 70-80 problems, but still die. This is a ridiculous time constraint. ​ source: am asian. go ahead call me "not a real asian"

RedShortForNothing

bi_isfor_

Fuck that


JD4Destruction

How many of you remember how it feels to use a pen very quickly for 1 minute? I think I may get hand cramps. I wrote a handwritten letter, possibly the first time to take notes by hand after college, and was surprised by how uncomfortable it was to use a pen other than signing.


infinit9

I wouldn't get anything wrong, but even just writing out the answers will take more than a minute.


aAa19285

thats basically impossible


Dark_Symbiote

3-5 mins at least


grannyjam

I consider myself pretty good at quick math. This took my 1:32 to do in my head, and that’s not including writing my answers down. This challenge feels pretty ridiculous. It might take me 2 minutes just to write everything out, and I still think it would take an average person longer


jieyanni

In 5th grade yes, now that I’m in calc 3 probably not unless I snuck a calculator in my rectum


Primary_Weekend_7801

I would just give up


BrandonGothizm

Nice try OP. We're not doing your homework for you.

TheMeanGirl

The best part about this post is that everyone is failing before even starting the quiz. >We have 1 minute to do 72 math problems. That’s 1.65 seconds each. I could make it if it we’re for those damn 8s! Screw me over to this very day... Bruh 😂

NOPE! I’m dead! I don’t do pressure! I remember when I was in middle school when we had to do these, I’d freeze up and get 40s. I knew the answers. But being timed is not my thing. AT ALL


PKMN_CatchEmAll

Time might be an issue, but there are a lot of them multiplying by 0 which you'd clear in less than a second so that buys some time.
