David ArchuletaHe's just hours away from performing live in front of millions of people, but 17-year-old "American Idol" wonderboy David Archuleta still has a few problems to work out -- problems of the high school math kind.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ that David has been with his tutor on the set, gettin' his state-mandated learnin' on.
