Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Math

The nice thing about math is that in general we always know there is going to be one answer, but sometimes we don’t know what that answer is but we’ll know when the answer “just doesn’t look right.”.  Take a look at this clip of Abbot & Costello, and see if you can figure out what is wrong with the problem. The answer is not right but it “seems” correct.  Can you find the error?

    I look forward to showing this to students and asking why this is not correct. 🙂
