Someone Who Loves Their Car
A car advertisement on the television caught my attention.
The young person being interviewed said: "This car has 26,000 miles. When I grow up I'm going to take it to one-hundred million!"
Suppose the person drives 26,000 miles a year...
Yikes...I love our mathematically-literate society!
- How long will it take to drive 100,000,000 miles?
- Approximately how old (or grown up) will the person be?
- Approximately how many oil changes, tire purchases, etc. will the car have?
