A Bat and a Ball...
« on: June 25, 2016, 09:13:49 pm »
Anybody listen to Friday's show? I know most of you here think I'm stupid.
Now I KNOW I am!

The question:

If a bat and a ball cost $1.10, and the bat costs a dollar more than the ball
how much does the ball cost?

Even after I went online and got the answer I STILL had to puzzle it out,
scratch my head and go: "Okay, whoa, start again..." a bunch of times.

Can you get it?

do you wear a helmet when you go outdoors.

Your parents may have called it your special hat.

Most people automatically assume the ball is ten cents. You're very smart.
Congratulate yourself. Wait, you already did.

I think he mocked you more than congratulated himself.

I guess your reading comprehension is similar to your math skills.

L is ball
T is bat

T = 1 + L
L + T = 1.10

L + (1 + L) = 1.10
subtract 1 from both sides

2L = .10
divide both sides by 2

L = .05


Check it....
T = 1 + .05
T= 1.05

.05 + 1.05 = 1.10  :koolaid
