Now, a group of Westminister, Australia students have used math to prove that there was legitimately room for both Jack and Rose on the door – and got an award in the process. According to The Advertiser, Abigail Wicks, Christy Zhang, and Julia Damato used their own research and math to show that the ill-fated couple could have survived if they had both hopped on the door and put their life jackets under it to keep the whole thing afloat.
Their work earned them the top spot of the Year 10 section of the National Maths Talent Quest and also earned them the first slot of their section in the state-based MASA Junior Secondary Mathematics Enrichment Project Awards.
