Mathlete

Here’s one of the ways my brain overachieves when I am trying to go to sleep:

The 3 new babies produced by my 3 sets of friends each have 2 syllable names.

• Baby Number 1’s parents --> mother: 2 syllable name; father: 1 syllable name

so 2 + 1 = 3, divided by 2 = 1.5 which rounded up is 2, for the 2 syllables in the baby’s name.You see, there cannot be a name with 1.5 syllables so it had to be either a 1 syllable name or a 2 syllable name.

• Baby Number 2’s parents --> mother: 1 syllable name; father: 3 syllable name

so 1 + 3 = 4, divided by 2 = 2, for the 2 syllables in the baby’s name.

• Baby Number 3’s parents --> mother: 3 syllable name; father: 1 syllable name

so 3 + 1 = 4, divided by 2 = 2, for the 2 syllables in the baby’s name.

This makes no sense whatsoever, but evidently it was imperative for my brain to make correlations very late at night.
