Teacher Math is hard

Comment: I have some old recipes that call for a one pound box of graham
crackers. In the past were they packaged in one pound packages.

I use lots of grahams and think they are wonderful.

Please let me know as I wish to make a graham cracker cake and want to
make sure it turns out okay, my recipe call for a one pound box.

You don't even need to do the maths. You'd just weigh the crackers out of the box.

Weighing is hard ? Well, not really.

Accepting the results can be harder

On their first date, Joe took Chloe to the carnival. When he asked her what
she wanted to do first, Chloe replied, "Get weighed."

So Joe took her to the man with the scale who guesses your weight. He looked
at Chloe and said, "One hundred and twenty pounds." Since Chloe weighed in at
one seventeen, she collected a prize.

Next they went on the roller coaster. When the ride was finished, Joe asked
Chloe what she wanted to do next. "Get weighed," she said. So they went back
to the man with the scale, who of course guessed Chloe's weight correctly.
Leaving without a prize, they went for a ride on the merry-go-round. After
they got off, Joe asked Chloe what she wanted to do next. "I want to get
weighed!" she said again.

Now Joe began to think this girl was quite strange, and decided to end the
evening quickly. He left her at the door with a quick handshake.

Chloe's roommate was waiting up for her return and asked how the evening
went.

"Wousy!" Chloe replied.

Remark, you are forgiven anything for guessing my weight at 117.

Even picking the name "Joe." (insert smiley here; there must be a way to do that)

Pfffft, anyone who took any level of Home Ec class knows by heart that there are four quarts in a gallon, three teaspoons in a tablespoon, and four boxes in a package. Thus, four pounds of graham crackers from a box equals one pound of graham crackers in a package. Next question?
