p = 6 or 2 or 1 or whatever!
Parker is in Calculus.
Maybe he should go back to Geometry.
Yesterday, *I* made this.
In light of the fact that no one will LET me hoard, I went on the proactive and started a friendly discussion.
"Okay, there are three of us. Each of us gets a third of the pie."
We're mature over here.
"Mom, it's not going to be like that. You won't ever eat a third. You are just trying to hoard your part."
Am I REALLY that transparent?
He's right. I won't eat a third.
I will eat ONE piece.
And we all sat down and had one piece together - a 1/8 of a pie piece.
Some of us had whipped cream and some of us had ice cream AND whipped cream.
And then, Parker had a second piece. with two more scoops of ice cream.
There was approximately half the pie left.
Here's where the math gets tricky
"Okay there's only half the pie left and you had a second piece Parker."
"No. There are three of us and there is a half of a pie left. So we each just ate 1/6."
"Except we didn't. You ate more."
"Mom, there are three of us. We each ate some pie and now their is half left, therefore we each ate 1/6 and going by your rule that we each get 1/3, we each get to eat 1/3 of what is left or 1/6 of the pie."
What kind of math is that?
