Do you think it's possible that even someone like him could be advanced/above average in mathematics given enough time?

      Why?

        Sure, why not? It's like learning another language. If you have the drive for it, you'll pass

        I have explained why here:

        If you think it’s plausible for any human to do math given just enough time and supernaturally good teachers, then why would that same thing not also apply to a chimp?
        You may say “the chimp has no language”. But does the distinction here matter? Stupid people are characterised by them not being able to understand certain complex concepts serialised into sentences. It’s fundamentally effectively the equivalent statement to say that stupids aren’t able to speak (parse and interpret, let alone produce) the relevant language, with which I mean a subset of possible English sentences, I am *not* meaning math as a language here.

        But you are not actually interested in learning the truth, because you can't process it (due to your middling intelligence), thus you don't react to obviously accurate posts made right under your nose.

    If you really think about it average is just passing high school math so yes

    in that video he says he can use measuring cups if they have lines on it

    but if he has to do fraction calculations to measure anything out, that's too hard for him

    I imagine he could struggle really hard and get some complex math concept. And then the next day he wouldn't remember anything and he'd have to learn it all over again. Maybe if he made his whole life revolve around math, he could get above average, given that average isn't that big a feat, but he'd need someone supporting him with the rest of his life.

    He's only a little bit below the black average IQ
    literally less than an sd lower.

    I remember some anon claiming that people at this level can't conceptualize questions like "What are you going to have for lunch tomorrow". If that's the case, no shot. You need to able to work in abstract spaces.

    It is possible if someone smart takes good care of him, otherwise no he will stagnate, decay and die.

      Not really dumb people don't realize the fact they're closer to death every day. Ignorance is bliss after all

      Some would say the chimp would never learn how to speak because he doesn't know what he's missing. A stupid person that realizes they're stupid and wants to get smarter isn't in the same situation as the chimp that gets "taught" language.

    Some would say it requires a higher IQ to find ways to compensate a lower IQ, which makes it an unsolvable problem if he tries to do it himseflf.

      That's correct, IQ is nonlinear. Then again even low IQs could just work really really hard
