Sometimes instructions are not crystal clear to 9 year olds. These are the instructions Special K received:
Change each addition problem to a multiplication problem
a) 3+3+3+3 b) 9+9+9 c) 7+7+7+7+7+7
This is how she interpreted the instructions:
a) 3x3x3x3=81 b) 9x9x9=729 c) 7x7x7x7x7x7=117,649
She did admit to having used a calculator to find her answers. She had to have been thinking, "Holy, cow! Math has sure taken a jump in difficulty!"

A Haiku has five
Seven and five syllables
Whale, chicken, pie, why?
