The hosts of Fox News’ morning show on Tuesday proved that many adults have poor math skills by failing a simple quiz from their own children in an epic way.
Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade noted that a recent study found that only about 5 percent of parents could help children with their math homework.
To find out if the study was true, the hosts used their own kids to quiz them on simple math questions.
Doocy started off well, answering the first question about multiplication correctly. Carlson literally scratched her head before picking wrong from the list of multiple-choice answers. Kilmeade declined to offer response.
The next question, however, did not go as well.
“Change 2.5 kilograms to grams,” Carlson’s daughter asked.
“Uh oh,” Carlson grimaced.
“I’m going to say ‘A’,” Kilmeade offered.
“I’m going to say ‘B’ because I have no idea,” Carlson said.
“I don’t think the answer is there,” Doocy shrugged. “A kilogram is a thousandth of a gram?”
After learning that the answer was ‘C’ — 2,500 grams — Kilmeade demanded a recount.
A question about finding 3 percent of $200,000 also stumped the trio. But in their defense, the correct answer was not offered in the list of choices.
“I’m confused,” Carlson said. “Come on, it’s 6,000!”
“There’s nobody even helping us in the control room,” Kilmeade complained. “During the Jeb Bush interview, I get all these helping from the control. I get nothing from them afterward because you guys don’t know it either!”
“Does somebody have a calculator on their phone?” Carlson asked.

CNN panel lights up Trump over ‘the greatest hypocrisy’ of his presidency
President Donald Trump received harsh criticism on Saturday for golfing while continuing to push conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, which Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
"In Wisconsin, President-elect Joe Biden has just picked up more votes in the state's recount. Remember, this is a recount that was requested by President Trump's campaign in its failing attempt to overturn the election results," CNN's Boris Sanchez reported. "The final count gave Biden a more than 180,000 vote edge over his rival in Milwaukee County and certified his victory."
"By the way, the recount cost millions of dollars, so the Trump team spent millions to lose even harder," he added.
CNN legal analyst laughs off Trump’s desire to get before the Supreme Court after a series of ‘humiliating’ court losses
On CNN Saturday, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig assessed the mounting failures in President Donald Trump's legal efforts to challenge the result of the 2020 election.
"I'm laughing because they keep trying, and the results this week somehow went from horrible to somehow even worse," said Honig. "The big case now is ... Rudy Giuliani's effort to overturn Pennsylvania. Last week, a federal district court judge firmly rejected the case. He said there's zero evidence. He called the case, a quote, 'Frankenstein's monster haphazardly stitched together' and that's gotta sting, and yesterday a three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals decisively and harshly rejected the case as well. And the thing is, President Trump's lawyers tried to attack the first judge, saying, well, he's an Obama nominee. Well, guess what? The three judges yesterday who unanimously rejected it were appointed by President George W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Donald J. Trump."
Judges are ‘fed up’ with Trump’s voter fraud claims as his lawyers get ‘themselves into hot water’: Ex-prosecutor
On CNN Saturday, following Donald Trump's Pennsylvania election suit being dismissed in a scathing opinion by a federal judge he had appointed, former federal prosecutor Shan Wu broke down the significance of the latest developments.
"I think this judge was just the latest in a series of judges fed up with the Trump team's weak arguments," said Wu. "I said in a piece back on November 8th on CNN that it was time for the Trump legal team to put up or shut up, and they haven't done either. I mean, judge after judge has rebuked them for not having any actual evidence. Even their claims are inconsistent. You hear the president publicly, Rudy Giuliani, the so-called mastermind, talking about fraud, and yet also Giuliani publicly has said this is not a fraud case. So they're all over the board."
