Oops! You Got a Low Score...
Maybe you're not focused or maybe you haven't done maths like this in a long time. think about it. Why not try again, and if not - have a look at our explanations of your mistakes below. In any case, the creatures are disappointed, and may not come again because they only like to talk about math. No matter, we don't need their help!
You Did Well!
You didn't ace the test, but you got high marks and the creatures are duly impressed. This isn't easy to do considering few of us actually use math like this in our every day life. Kudos for keeping the math alive and your brain well and functioning, and have a look below at your mistakes to learn from them.
You ACED This Test!
Wow, are you a retired maths teacher? These poor creatures never saw it coming! These are high marks indeed! You either got full marks or only had one mistake, and that happens to us all. You are a math wiz and if you haven't used math like this since school, we're double impressed with you. You're awesome, and you've sent them packing!
