Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader
I have a granddaughter that is struggling with math, went out to help her tonight with math homework, ok stay with me here.
The poser was this... Stormy Daniels has a box she need to build that is 15”high by 18” long with no lid. How much wood does she need? I am very curious what everyone answers might be, but this was the problem. I finally got the answer but just would love to know how everyone would solve this. Chine in please and thank you. Can’t believe math these days��

What is the 3rd dimension? If it is 15 wide by 18 deep, for example, what is the depth? I must be missing something

I’m sorry it is a rectangle 18” by 15” 15” tall wiith a bottom and no lid. Sorry for the confusion, after I finally figured it out I needed a stiff bourbon. It was a bear figuring out what the teacher wanted. Good luck ��

it would be 3 pieces 18" long plus two 15" square ends... but the real answer is depends on what lumber or plywood is available.

 three pieces that are 18" long x 15" wide for the sides and the bottom.
 two pieces that are 15" x 15" square for the ends Total is 84" x 15" which works out to 1260 sq in. or 8.75 sq ft.

Is this a real math problem or a joke about "box" and "wood"?

I am really waiting for the "punch line" with Stormy Daniels. There just has to be one!

#8




my first thought also starting out with Stormy ...

#9




maybe a box for a chicken to choke?

This is the correct answer. I was confused and it was not stated what unit of measure for the wood he wanted. It was my thought it was a poorly worded problem. And yes it was a real problem I just embellished it with the Stormy Daniels reference.
