Why doing math is good

You're shopping, and you have a handful of items. They're all on sale:

Two items at $34 each, the sale price is buy one get the second for half price.

Ten items of random prices, on sale five for $20.

The cashier rings you up, and says, "That'll be a hundred and thirty-four dollars and blah cents." You say?


(I'm willing to bet I'm the only person in the store who would have gotten this problem right.)
