MATH QUIZ TO SEE IF YOU'LL BE A MILLIONAIRE!

If Both People In a Couple Can Answer These Three Math Questions Correctly, Odds Are You'll Be Millionaires  We FINALLY have a reason why you should've paid attention in math class.  According to a new study, if both members of a couple can answer these three math questions right, the odds are you'll be millionaires by the time you're 50.   --Really.  It's that simple.  In the study, spouses who both answered all three of these questions right averaged a combined worth of at least $1.7 MILLION by age 50.  Couples who both got all three wrong were worth under $200,000 by age 50.   --Here are the three questions.  Ready to see if you've got millions of dollars in your future?  #1.)  If the chance of getting a disease is 10%, how many people out of 1,000 would be expected to get the disease?  #2.)  If five people all have the winning numbers in the lottery, and the prize is $2 MILLION, how much will each of them get?  #3.)  Let's say you have $200 in a savings account.  The account earns 10% interest per year.  How much would you have in the account after two years?  (--The answers to the math questions are:  100 people . . . $400,000 each . . . and $242.)

The answer to #3 is Wrong....The answer is 240. I dont see were the extra $2 is coming from. Because if you take 200 time 10% you would get $20. Then you would times 20 by 2 and that gives you 40. And 200 plus 40 is 240. PAT YOUR AWSOME! KEEP UP THE GOODWORK.

The answer to #3 is wrong. I dont see where the extra 2 came from...Because if you take 200 times 10% you would get 20 a year. Then you take the 20 times 2 and get 40. Add the 40 to the 200 and you would get $240 a year.
