Did you know that you can even ask the police for their help in your school homework? Well, many of us didn’t!
According to the sun, 10 years old Lena Draper reached out to Marion Police Department for their help in her maths homework:
However, Instead of declining her request, Ohio officer Lieutenant B.J. Gruber decided to help the girl by replying her:
“What’s up”, said the officer to which Lena replied by saying, “I need a little help with my homework”.
The problem was simple for the officer: “(8+29)x15”
He explained Lena by instructing her to add the numbers in the parenthesis first. After that, the solution will be 37 x 15.
However, the private tuition wasn’t over yet. Lena asked help for one more problem:
Now with the 2nd question of (90+27)+(29+15)x2 came back at officer to which he replied with, “Take the answer from the first parenthesis plus the answer from the second parenthesis and multiply that answer times two..“.
However, with all due respect for the humbleness, officer made a mistake which was pointed out by Amy Pelfrey in one of the comments:
After which, Lieutenant Gruber said to the sun, “Hoping it is truly the thought that counts since apparently I cannot! Especially since the answer was wrong, it was very nice for Molly to acknowledge our attempt to help her daughter with some math homework.”
100 points to Lieutenant Gruber!!
