My eight year old grandson caught a mistake on a restaurant's receipt...
do you see the mistake?
$11.20 + $0.91 = $12.11
My son-in-law (the new math graduate) used it as a teaching moment for
my grandson who was analyzing the numbers on the receipt.
That smart little Monkey Boy figured out that if 100 people ate at that restaurant each day
and they were open everyday of the year, they would make an extra $730.
Wow! Makes me wonder how often I've given two extra cents (or more) and didn't know it!
I'll be keeping a better eye on my receipts from now on.
P.S. Only six days until Say It With Flowers!
