The quiz mistress of the National Science and Mathematics Quiz, Dr. Elsie Kaufman displayed her prowess and command over Mathematics or to put it in a better way, "Maths language" today during the quarter finals contest between KNUST SHS, Accra Academy and Ola SHS. This happened when she posed a Mathematics question to the students from KNUST Senior High School. This was the question, "Find the vertex of the curve y=-20+8x-x^2"
For those of us who did not like Maths, we will find problems with this. Be that as it may, the answer required is supposed to be a co-ordinate or a point. This consists of an x-coordinate and a y-coordinate. I guess you will be laughing at your bad performance in maths right now. Lol.
The students from KNUST SHS had their answers right. This was their answer, "4 'comma' -4"
In response the quiz mistress gave them a short piece of advice, "You are right but by the way, if you are giving your coordinates, there is no need for you to bring in a comma. Just go straight and mention the coordinate, I will not allow this comma business here."
The viewers were perplexed at the intelligence of Dr, Elsie Kaufman and for that matter, she was given thunderous applause.
