A Lady with Real Problems I will make this "discussion" a really short one. It is about Ms Seesal. She had problems that you simply would not believe. Not in 100 years would you believe her problems- not even in five minutes would you believe them. The time I was told about her first problem, I could not believe it. I thought, "No one could possibly ever have a problem as bad as that one. I wonder how she came to get it?" Then I was told to go into Ms. Seesal's room and check out those problems - to see if I could maybe find some solutions. I went into Ms. Seesal's room. There, right before my eyes, were just SOME of her problems. I quickly determined that there was slight chance of my ever being able to come up with solutions for them. I may not be too much of a dummy, but those problems were way over my head - way too much for me. Here is just the first of them: 17 divided by 32.683 multiplied by the square root of 1/896 is equal to WHAT? Ms. Seesal loved to teach mathematics to us Fifth Graders. * * * * * * * * * * Image source: Pixabay dot com * * * * * * * * * *

@jaboUK - Ms Janet - It seemed like there were one or two of them around every corner when I was a kid. They literally infested the corridors, even the hallowed corridors. Summed up, that made things mighty tough on us ignorant little warts.

@Ceerios My mom was a math teacher, she had her master's degree in Mathematics. And I was a mathphobe.

@paigea - I was so dull in math class that I got a "D" grade in trigonometry one time and it made my father so angry with me that I took the course over once again - and the second time got the lower grade of "F." -Gus-

My mom was fond of having us solve those problems when we were in second grade. I prefered to read. I did not care about how much money the farmer had received for his apples. Princes were better.

@marguicha - I concur with your attitude. Princes know better than to have problems.

I hope you were able to solve some of her problems. Poor woman.

@paigea - Unfortunately, solving Ms Seesal's problems was well beyond my limited abilities. Even so, her situation did not subtract from her advancement on the job.

@ModernDayWriter - Friend Yogesh - you are almost correct in your estimation of the answer to that arithmetic nonsense. If you were to stick one more zero (another naught) before the very first zero (the beginning naught), I believe that you would have the whole thing solved exactly correctly (not naughtily).
