Real World Math

As a middle child out of 7, my daughter’s math word problems always manage to strike me as hilarious.

  1. You have 4 chocolate bars that you have to share with your two sisters. What equation shows how this would work out?
  2.  You have 7 donuts you must share with your four brothers. What equation shows how this would work out?

“Mommy, what’s so funny?”

“Well…do they want to know the *actual* answer to either of those questions or just what they wished it would work out like in a mathematical la-la land?”

 

How would that work out in YOUR family? 🙂

    Clearly the Mom tax would come into play in the 1st scenario. Everyone would have 1 chocolate bar.
