Of course we know that the answer should have been 9. What grade are you in to be doing such simple math. I thought you had to be 18 in order to be on mylot. The math you demonstrated is like second grade math, rather elementary. Or was it part of a formula you were trying to figure out?

its not just 3 * 3 my friend it is a long sum in Calculus theory. yes i am 18. i was doing the sum very fast and when i checked back i saw at one point in the sum i miscalculated as i have put 6 instead of 9. clear enough?

Oh, I thought it had to be part of something else. Hope you be a little careful the next time.

It's not stupid. Everyone makes this sort of mistake at least once in our lives. Just be more careful the next time round you need to take a Maths test! Check and double check to ensure that your answers are correct! Hopefully, this 1 single mistake will not cause a dropping in your grades! I wish you all the best of luck! Well, there are definately more stupider mistakers than this. Mistakes that people can never undo or there is no second chance to amend the mistakes that were made. Mistakes that involved a change in a person's life, causing their downfall. Sure, there are many, just that I cannot think of any more than this. Lol. Take care, and don't dwell too much on this! Move on, and just be more careful the next time round!
