'This Woman Is Underpaid': Class 7 Student's Answer To Maths Word Problem

"This woman is underpaid," writes a student after solving a mathematics question about a woman worker and her salary. The snap of the solution was shared by a twitter user who in turn had received the same from a teacher. It isn't clear who wrote this answer or which school this student belongs to but the student has won hearts with his critical analysis of the social context of the mathematics problem in question. 

 

 


The mathematics problem in question has given the amount earned by a woman in 15 months which is Rs. 18,000. The student has calculated - amount she earns in one month, amount she earns in 7 months, and number of months it will take her to earn Rs. 30,000. After providing the solution, the student at the end has given his verdict that the woman in question is underpaid.
