# Can you help me with my homework?

My teacher set me some homework:

What is the answer to my homework?

You will also need a copy of my homework to help you.

You don't need the image to solve the puzzle, that is just a preview.

Hint:

The question is from my computer science teacher, who has been experimenting with some strange programming languages...

After solving

I couldn't write the text out on SE because it doesn't allow tabs.

• @BeastlyGerbil no – Melkor Jan 27 '17 at 18:16
• Good. Just had to ask. And if it was, then I would definitely be wondering what sort of school you go to :P – Beastly Gerbil Jan 27 '17 at 18:19
• @Melkor Why an image? could you write it out instead? – dcfyj Jan 27 '17 at 18:31
• @Will: These are not all spaces; they are spaces and tabs. – M Oehm Jan 27 '17 at 19:53

Solution 1:

As M Oehm said, if you convert the spaces after the lines to 0 and the tabs as 1, you get:

0001101001
0000100000
111100
00110011
100000
1110011
1100011
1101000
1101111
1101111
1101100
Converting this to ASCII, you get the message <3 school.

Solution 2:

If you run this in the esoteric programming language Whitespace, you get the message i <3 school. Try it online!

• Well done to @Oliver and @M Oehm! – Melkor Jan 27 '17 at 20:49
