Children don't always understand the nuances of language, like this kid who gave a very literal answer to a math problem. Well, maybe this kid didn't understand the nuances, or maybe he was just being a smartass. Either way, when Redditor irishchck14's kid answered a math question, he didn't exactly do what the teacher was hoping for (and it wasn't because the problem was super difficult):

It is technically a correct answer. The best part is the frown, so we all know that the kid is not happy to be thinking about math. It's OK, kid. Nobody is.
