My daughter started her math lesson and got all the way to problem 25 (actually she's ahead and it's tomorrow's lesson) and then wandered off to make everyone a grilled cheese and some French toast. While she's gone, I'm sitting here at my computer which is right next to hers, working and when my work pauses I look over at her screen and read this problem.
"Ralph can lay down a floor tile in 5 seconds. Bob can lay down a floor tile in 4 seconds. If both boys work together, how many seconds would it take them to install 450 floor tiles?"
I have some additional questions.
What is Bob's phone number?
What is Ralph's phone number?
When can they come over?
I have about 400 floor tiles that need to go down and I'm pretty sure no one in this house can put one down every 4 seconds. :-D
