13 x 7 = 28 a la Abbott and Costello and Ma and Pa Kettle

Fire up the movie projector! Really, when did you last watch Abbott and Costello?

School is out, my math skills are slipping already, and yet Abbott and Costello’s perfectly sensible math problem makes sense, quite against most versions of common sense.

(Did your Favorite Math Teacher already show this to you?)

And here is Ma and Pa Kettle’s version.

(This whole topic is likely a repost, but I can’t remember! Is it? Worth it!)

[Thanks! Thanks! and Thanks!]
