    Does lipstick minus stick equal lip?

    Correct Answer
    yes
    Yes
    Explanation
    The question is asking if "lipstick minus stick" equals "lip." In this case, the word "minus" suggests subtraction, so "lipstick minus stick" would mean removing the word "stick" from "lipstick." This leaves us with "lip," which is the same as the word "lip" mentioned in the question. Therefore, the answer is yes.

    True or False, Fractions are selfish?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement that "Fractions are selfish" is false. Fractions are mathematical expressions that represent a part of a whole. They do not possess any characteristics or behaviors that can be classified as selfish or selfless. Fractions are simply a tool used in mathematics to represent division or ratios.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Why is 6 afraid of 7?

    • A.

      Because seven eight nine!

    • B.

      6 isn't afraid of anyone

    Correct Answer
    A. Because seven eight nine!
    Explanation
    The answer "Because seven eight nine!" is a play on words. In the question, "eight" is pronounced the same way as the word "ate." So, when it says "seven eight nine," it sounds like "seven ate (eight) nine," which is a pun. This is a common joke where the numbers are personified, and 6 is afraid because 7 is eating the number 9. The second statement "6 isn't afraid of anyone" is incorrect and not related to the joke.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    True or false.  If you add negative numbers you get bigger negative numbers.

    • A.

      True.

    • B.

      False.

    Correct Answer
    A. True.
    Explanation
    When adding negative numbers, the sum will be a bigger negative number because the negative sign indicates a decrease or subtraction. Adding two negative numbers together means combining two decreases, resulting in a larger decrease or a bigger negative number.
