This is a good mathematics problem from a not so good movie.
Students usually can work it out but they do have to think. Get your students to write down the answer. They find this difficult.
The scene occurs about a third of the way in. A good long sequence but watch for the swearing towards the end of it. It is best to review this movie for this reason.
The problem is a challenge to all ages. Students enjoy the problem and probably the movie too....
