fess up, Jason
When exactly did Eileen become that good at math? The one time she did better than Jason, she studied like mad and he didn’t and still got a 102 vs her 104. Otherwise she was usually depicted as one of the smarter kids but not absurd genius like him.
Teddy and Francis do the exact same thing with Nate
I saw that coming.
Math is actually pretty much self-checking: Once you have what appears to be the answer, you just plug it into the problem and see if it works.
Yeah, yeah: SOME algorithms are effectively irreversible, but I doubt they appear at this level in school.
Good thing you got your homework Paige-proof! (And that’s not proof read by Paige!)
Today’s classic Sunday strip we’re missing:
Given that Jason appears to be about 9-10 yrs old, his math homework couldn’t be more difficult than long division or fractions … in which case he can find an app for his smart phone to self check himself.
You know what he means, Paige! Do you really want him to say it out loud?
Paige should not play Jason’s sick game.
Bring back Daily Foxtrot!
Paige, Paige, Paige, you should know better than to trust anything your little brother asks of you by now.
It means that they’re equally smart.
I think it’s, he caught a dumb mistake by Paige making the same dumb mistake, which he knew she would do…a bit of a stretch, this one.
This could go two ways; either he is tricking her into verifying his answers or he is concerned that if she agrees with an answer, it must be wrong…I’m assuming the latter (sorry to go all Sheldon on this!)
But she still works hard all the time. Turtle and hare.
Well, Jason, if you’re making dumb mistakes, Eileen may just beat you out.
Jason is such a little sadist. I like to think had i an older sister, id have acted similarly.
He means that you are so dumb that if he got the same answer as you, it was wrong. What, you asked
HAHAHAHA Paige’s reaction in panel 6
