Earlier this month there was a huge debate on this forum about an error KTN had made on their interactive game show. The issue was with the simple arithmetic – 11 x 2 + 32 – 21 + 5 x 3 + 5 x 1 The answer that won cash was 120, which off course was WAY off.
Well, yesterday KBC ran something similar on their show.
23 – 12 x 5 + 112 – 20 + 3 x 8 + 12
The choices were -125, -170 and 250
I took screen shots:
The answer that won Kshs.50,000 was 250
So how did they arrive at 250? Here’s their calculation:
If you look at the pictures closely, KBC actually changed the question and then awarded 50,000/- to….”the winner”. Theft in broad daylight!
What are your thoughts on this? Where can a complaint be made?
Even the fraudulent answer does NOT add up to 250!!!!
