My daughter just presented this question as well. Only by looking at the response generated from your question here on the net(from Walter somebody who appears to be a mathematics statistician ) did I get it. Now my 9 year old has assured me that she is smarter than me because she actually had an answer that I didn't think was correct until I read Mr. Math professor's answer. I also am having nightmarish reminders of my 9th grade geometry teacher. thank you.
