    Agnes, neither 2 nor 8 has sharp edges.


    2 × 2 = 4, so if you divide 28 by 2 and then by 2 again, you get the right answer without handling any pointy 1’s, 4’s or 7’s.

    One is the loneliest number you will ever know.

    I have dyscalcula, and I know EXACTLY how Agnes feels! Love the line about having knicked her frontal lobe.

    But 4 is part of the problem and 7 is the answer so she is gonna hafta handle those.

    2 has a pointy spot too.

    I don’t know why the teacher keeps sending Agnes to the principal, I would think, he/she, would look forward to Agnes’ answers/ideas.

    Your avatar makes me think of the number 8. All those lovely curves.

    OH! I was reading it as dividing 4 BY 28 – I thought that was pretty advanced for Agnes’ age group. I need to read more slowly…

    That’s fantastic reasoning, if I ever heard any . . .

    Well since the answer to the question of 4 into 28 you get a 7 which is sharp edged.

    Well, OK…. I was thinking of a sort of soft, loopy 2,
    and if you divide by 2 and then 2 again, you don’t need a 4…..


    So maybe when she gets the 7 she could just drop it on the teacher’s desk without touching it….?


    Hi Schearer — that’s Sophia Loren in her famous wet shirt from Boy on a Dolphin.

    Lotta guys think she’s a 10.
    But what do I know — I’m female. LOL

    Two can be as bad as one.

    8. 8 is nice and round. I thought about 6, but there’s that opening in the top. Let’s in all the air.

    My first name has 8 letters. So, yeah, nice round number. I think we can forget the math for today.
