NORCROSS, Ga. (WXIA) -- Test questions on a third grade math test outraged parents at Beaver Ridge Elementary School in Norcross.

The questions that offended parents and other members of the community included ones like "Each tree has 56 oranges. If eight slaves picked them equally, then how much would each slave pick?" 

Several parents and members of such organizations as the NAACP held a protest outside the school Tuesday morning.
