scientist brain

Harrison is planning us a family trip. He knows the maximum amount of money we can spend on the trip. He had some destination ideas: Las Vegas, Capitol Reef, St George, Palisade State Park. I gave him the lodging costs in each location and also the mileage to each location. I told him we get about 25 miles per gallon of gas. He immediately began long division using 25 as the divisor and each location's mileage as the dividend. The only question he asked was "how much is 1 gallon of gas?" The boy just has a mathematical brain that is always busy. Oh, his decision is Las Vegas. He is even prepared with a wallet of spending money. What a great kid. This is going to be so much fun.
