# Are most of the questions asked on Socratic school-related?

Sep 27, 2017

Yes.

#### Explanation:

The overwhelming majority of questions that are being posted on Socratic are school-related, meaning that most of the students who ask questions on Socratic do so because they need help with their homework questions.

Based on the level of the questions, which can be used as an indicator of the level of the students, I would estimate that we have

$\text{high school " > " middle school " > " college " > " primary school}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a} \stackrel{\leftarrow}{\textcolor{w h i t e}{a a a a a \textcolor{red}{\text{questions asked}} a a a a a a a a}}$

So the number of questions asked by high school students is higher than that the number of questions asked by middle school students, which, in turn, is higher than the number of questions asked by college school students, which, in turn, is higher than the number of questions asked by primary school students.

Keep in mind that this is just a general trend based on the total number of questions that are posted on Socratic because each subject will have its own data.

For example, almost all of the questions that are asked in Prealgebra are coming from primary school students, whereas almost all the questions posted in Calculus are coming from high school and college students.
