Math is hard
While we’re on the subject of how hard math can be, we’d like to direct your attention to this person’s social media post. While looking at a bottle of French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, this guy realized that it contained 50% more than its 12-ounce bottle. However, he was utterly confused about why this bottle only had 18 ounces.
Well, math whiz, it’s because half of 12 ounces is 6. Add that to 12 and you get 18 ounces. Or, if you prefer multiplication, multiply 1.5 by 12 ounces. That’s how you get the number 18. Do you get it now? He probably doesn’t.
