Ending days at any job are often (always?) traumatic, even if you're leaving of your own free will to "pursue other interests". Today we have a sad departure - one of our folks is leaving us and ending employment at The Mighty Ansmar Publishers, home of Excel Math.
I'm going to make this departure a math problem, to give you an example of the sorts of things that kids learn using our elementary math curriculum.
Here are the rules.
1. I will provide the number of calendar days that have elapsed since the 10 people on the list below STARTED working at Ansmar. I call this the Job Duration Number (JDN).
2. Once you have seen the number of days, I will give you a math problem to solve, which will reveal the person who is leaving.
3. It's up to you to determine who will be a former employee at 4:30 this afternoon,
4. And who is the newly-hired replacement.
Whose job duration number consists of an odd number of hundreds with zero tens and zero ones? _______
Take that number and subtract 100. _______
Take the resulting total and use it as the dividend in a division problem. Use as your divisor the job duration number of our most-recently hired employee. The quotient is the number of the person leaving today.
Who is leaving? ___________
and who is the most-recently hired person? ____________
