Math ? Huh?
In the first video the man baked 28 donuts and he has to split them up between 7 people. The man is saying that they each get 13 donuts. He is saying that 28/7 is 13. He said 7 does not go into 2 but it goes into 8, 1 time, and since you didn’t use the 2, he brought it back and said 7 goes into 21 3 times, so he says its 13. Each person should get 4 donuts because 21/4 equals 7.
In the second video the man was splitting up 25 % of his parent’s fortune between 5 people. The parents thought it was 14% the parents said 14x5 is 25.
He did 4x5 and 1x5 and he got 25 because 4x5 is 20 and 1x5 is 5. It should be 5%.

I write almost everyday, and would never give it up. My latest story so far that I'm working on is going to be called Wanderer, but it is not even close to being finished and once it is, i still will have to edit it. I have won a novel contest, which I am so excited about because then all i have to do is edit the novel, find an editor and get it published. I hope to grow up to be an author. I like homework and school, but I do not like the stress of it all, which i find kinda strange. I do not work well in groups, all my teachers and close friends know this fact quite well. My nickname in a Manga club that I joined, located at the East Pikes Peak library, is Silence which fits me pretty well.
