We FINALLY have a reason why you should've paid attention in math class. According to a new study, if both members of a couple can answer these three math questions right, the odds are you'll be millionaires by the time you're 50.

In the study, spouses who both answered all three of these questions right averaged a combined worth of at least $1.7 MILLION by age 50. Couples who both got all three wrong were worth under $200,000 by age 50.

Ready to see if you've got millions of dollars in your future?

#1.) If the chance of getting a disease is 10%, how many people out of 1,000 would be expected to get the disease?

#2.) If five people all have the winning numbers in the lottery, and the prize is $2 MILLION, how much will each of them get?

#3.) Let's say you have $200 in a savings account. The account earns 10% interest per year. How much would you have in the account after two years?

The answers to the math questions are: 100 people . . . $400,000 each . . . and $242.
