    I think people are downvoting because they think OP is the one asking the question...

    I almost downvoted because I thought you were questioning the math. I'm glad I took another minute to process lol.

    Guys, there's a snapchat text if you click on the picture. OP isn't asking the question they're facepalming at the person in the photo asking the question.

    I thought the exact same thing too.

    Gawd it was hurting my brain. I was like "is 6 plus 12 not 18? Is 6 plus 6 not 12? Is 12 divided by 2 not 6? Which of these is a lie?!?!!?"

    THE FACEPALM IS THE PERSON WHO QUESTIONED THIS. THE FACEPALM IS NOT THE MUSTARD. STOP COMMENTING THIS.

    Thanks everyone who told us to click on the picture because I was in the same boat as many others seem to be. Fortunately I never downvote someone before checking the comments because I figure it's usually me that's missing something. It was!

    'How is 18oz 50% more than 12oz?!?!?!'

    50% extra

    50% of 12 is 6.

    12+ 6 is 18.

    Just in case, you wanted to know.

    I think it's because 50% of 12 is 6 then add 6 to 12 = 18

  • snh_snh

    50%of 12 is 6. 6 plus 12 is 18

    I don't know what is funnier, the people losing their shit and trying to prove the math (the facepalm is that the idiot didn't know the math was right), or the amount of idiots thinking the math is wrong.

    This whole post has become r/facepalm worthy...just for these ignorant comments.

  • shewy92

    The facepalm is of the Snapchat text. 50% of 12 is 6. This mustard has 50% more than the 12 oz. So it has 6 oz more, which would be 18 oz.

    While I get the facepalm is the snapchat text, why does French's need to tell us that 18oz is 50% more than their own 12oz size? Why stop there? Did you realize Kraft's 24oz mustard is TWICE as much as the 12oz?

    "50% more free" - is something to put on a label.

    "50% better tasting" - maybe

    "50% fresher" - maybe not

    50% more than a smaller size? Yeah, thanks, Capt Obvious.

    LOL. I too, like many in the comments came to criticize OP about his lack of Math Skills... Then, I too saw the subreddit was /facepalm..

    Balance has been restored to my mind.

    People get confused with percentages. They think 50% more means double.

    I love these posts where 600+ people have to come in to explain the math because the first person just isn't enough.

    Is the face palm the bottle being wrong, or the person taking the picture being wrong? I feel like the math is correct.

  • maxr1051

    50% of 12 is 6 and 6+12=18

  • star_boy2005
    1 Week(s) Ago

    The original amount was 12 oz. 50% of that is 6 oz. Add that 50% to the original and what do you get?

    I am curious what the person thought the correct answer was.

  • R4D33

    To anyone who didn't get it...

    The person in the post: how is 18 OZ 50% of 12 OZ?

    The OP: BECAUSE OF MATHS....
