My friend Jim wanted to meet me at the mall at 4pm. If he left his house at 3:07pm traveling an average speed of 23.5 mph, how much time do I have to do my hair and still beat him to the Cinnabon? Solve for x.

When I was in elementary school, I used to try to integrate in my head... the long way. When I found about about Calculus years later I had a pretty good chuckle.

I only use it to count money and do basic calculations like that. Eventually I will have to do some calculations to work out dosages and things of that nature but right now I hardly use it lol

I'm always counting money!
