MommyMathYou’ve had a hard day. Why not relax and flex your mommy math skills?

(Hint: Before you start the quiz, every “mother” referenced below is me…and possibly you).

WTF1. A mother is sweeping the floor and collects a good pile of dust and dirt in the center. Her child notices a single green bead amid the refuse, and requests that the mother not throw it away. The mother acquiesces, requesting the child put the bead back in its box with the others, since she loves it so much. Given this information, how many beads are left on the floor?

a) 1
b) 0
c) 419754928671802702

d) none of the above

candy2. A mother gives herself one goal that day: do not consume any candy. In the house, she has six mini Hershey Bars and a bag of red hots. Throughout the day, she eats a good breakfast, taco salad for lunch, and drinks plenty of water both before and after she goes to the gym. She has a dinner of roasted chicken and potatoes, and a cheese/avocado/tomato salad. How much candy has she consumed?

a) None

b) One mini Hershey as a treat for doing so well
c) Some of the red hots because they’re tiny and have no fat anyway
d) ALL OF THE CANDY BECAUSE IT’S THERE AND IT’S PAST 9 P.M.
