You might remember those seemingly unrealistic math problems that were given in school, for example, the ones where Sally is buying 18 watermelons, eating 13 slices of pizza, and walking 28 dogs. The subreddit r/theydidthemath takes this one step further, and solves complex, but completely unnecessary calculations. In spite of their apparent lack of usefulness, their calculations are often incredibly interesting breakdowns of random things that pique their curiosity. Inspired by everything from tweets to memes, here are some of the best calculations from r/theydidthemath.
