EL PASO - Here's a math question for you: If you have 10 days to answer 100,000 math problems, how many problems do have to solve each day?

Students at Mitzi Bond Elementary have to answer 10,000 math problems every day for 10 days, to accomplish their goal of 100,000.
Its called Mitzi Bond's Massive Math 100,000 Challenge.
If the students hit their seemingly impossible goal by March 9, Principal Haidi  Appel will dye her hair pink.

now take the number of students and divide that by the amount of math problems they each have to do in a day, keep in mind they are not in class for 24hrs a day, some may not be in class on some days, and consider breaks and lunch. now how long does that give them to solve each problem in 10 days?

Now answer that.
