Stupid math answers

Yes, you read that correctly. I am blogging about idiotic answers to a math question instead of idiotic math questions.

This person wants to know how to solve (x+6)(2x-1) = 0. From algebra, if xy =0, then x=0 or y=0. We can see that for this problem, either x+6 = 0 or 2x -1 =0, yielding solutions of x = -6 or x = 1/2.

If you look at all the answers submitted, many of them were completely wrong!
