PM me if you wish an 🍎.

Good morning class here we go again, happy as can be. I hope some of the new classmates have a go today.

A money-conscious student likes to wear a clean shirt every day. He brings his shirts to the laundromat every Monday morning and picks them up exactly one week later. How many shirts does the budget-minded student need to own so that he has a clean shirt to put on every day?

The answer is NOT 8

Oh Charleygirl, how lovely to see you here first.
You are today's Class Sook.
For those who are not Scots, a sook is someone one who is always trying to be in teacher's good books, however I'm not easily impressed. wink

Marydoll Wed 13-May-20 08:48:46

Goodbyetoallthat, lovely to see you here. A word of warning, do not trust anyone. They will lead you astray! grin

Marydoll Wed 13-May-20 08:54:03

Charleygirl5 Wed 13-May-20 10:20:31

I am Scottish but no sook. I was educated properly having passed my 11+ with an A grade but I am having problems reading what the others have written- it is barely legible and as I said previously these girls are unemployable. Even spell check has given up.

Miss, I do not mind taking over but there will be no playing around. You need a rest having taken your medication.
