Enfakid A+ Milk Newspaper Ad = FAIL
Friday, October 24, 2008

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Stardate -315808.91


Enfakid A+'s latest Inquirer Ad is one of the biggest FAIL jobs of 2008. I have nothing against milk formulas because I myself was breastfed by my mom and fed different milk formulas when I was a child. I did get an eidetic memory from either the milk I consumed when I was a child or from the genes my parents have. But from Enfakid A+ latest ad, I'm starting to believe my eidetic memory came from my genes.


The Enfakid A+ ad from Inquirer shows a 9 + 5 = 14 mathematical equation. It's correct but when you open the flap, the epic fail begins.


Once you open the ad, the mathematical equation expands to 9 + 5 * 2 - (7 * 2) = 14. Apparently, the guys who made and approved this ad fail at basic mathematics in elementary. I'm sure most of you know the MDAS rule in solving these kind of math problems. Let's try to solve this equation the proper way shall we?

First solve the equation inside the parenthesis, in this case 7 * 2. We get 14.

Now the equation shortens to 9 + 5 * 2 - 14. Following the MDAS rule, multiply 5 to 2 in which the answer is 10. Now we have 9 + 10 - 14. Using the same MDAS rule, 9 + 10 = 19 then 19 - 14 = 5.

The answer should be 5. FIVE.

"Your child can learn, discover and imagine far richer with Enfakid A+. Now with enhanced DHA levels that help brain cells communicate well to support your kid’s rapid mental development. Nourish the brain. Pursue Excellence"

What a way to advertise a milk formula that supposedly increase brain cell efficiency. Nice one.


UPDATE 10/24/2008 15:43:



Following an epic fail of advertisement, Mead Johnson Philippines has released another newspaper ad based on the first epic fail. This time, the equation was crossed out by a genius kid. People are not that gullible.
Excellence can be tested in ways we least expect. The average 3-to-6-year-old may not know that this test should be solved using the PEMDAS rule. Help your child excel beyond the ordinary. Give him Enfakid A+. Now with enhanced DHA levels that help brain cells communicate well to support his rapid mental development.

Nourish the brain. Pursue excellence.

EPIC SAVE FAIL!

---
In algebra and computer programming, when a number or expression is both preceded and followed by a binary operation, a rule is required for which operation should be applied first; this rule is known as an order of operations.

From the earliest use of mathematical notation, multiplication took precedence over addition, whichever side of a number it appeared on. Thus,

3 + 4 × 5 = 23.
3 + 20 = 23
23 = 23

When exponents were first introduced, in the 16th and 17th centuries, exponents took precedence over both addition and multiplication, and could be placed only as a superscript to the right of their base. Thus 3 + 52 = 28 and 3 × 52 = 75.

To change the order of operations, a vinculum (an overline or underline) was originally used. Today one uses parentheses (). Thus, if one wants to force addition to precede multiplication, one writes (3 + 4) × 5 = 35. (source)

Do they even teach PEMDAS to that age group? I remember having art classes and being taught how to read the clock in nursery school but multiplication?!?!
