Friday Funny on Tuesday


Last week, we were working on algebra in my class.  One of the problems on the page was 7 + f.  There was a value given at the end, but the boys in my class wanted to despute it.  They said that 7 + f had to equal m, or 13.  Their reasoning?  F is the 6th letter of the alphabet, and 7 + 6 equals 13.  The 13th letter of the alphabet is m.  Thus 7 + f = m, or 7 + 6 = 13.

I love these brains!
