Mathematics and Social Networks

That title is entirely aimed at getting my geekier readers to see this joke Zoe and I came up with.

Zoe: “I can’t believe Dylan would rather hang out with one sixth grader than three 8th graders.”

Dad: “I guess that means that he thinks you’re in Grade Two.”

Zoe: “Wah?”

Dad: “Well, do the math.”

  1. 3 x Grade8 = 1 x Grade6
  2. Grade8 = 1/3 x Grade6
  3. Grade8 = Grade2

Zoe: “Great Dad, why don’t you just blog about it instead of teasing me.”
