This Teenage Girl Can’t Figure Out How Long It Would Take A Car Going 80 MPH To Travel 80 Miles

You know what, this could happen to anyone.

1. This is Laurel May, she’s a 19-year-old from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and her older sister Amber just asked her a math question.

(Warning: The mom in this video uses a lot of very fantastic swear words.)

2. Here’s the question:

“If you’re travelling 80 miles away at 80 miles per hour, how long will it take you to reach you destination?”

3. She thinks about it for a second…


4. …And then accidentally knocks over her Diet Coke in frustration.


5. And then she tries to clean it up while her mom and sister desperately try to explain to her that if a car is going 80 miles per hour it would take the car an hour to drive 80 miles.


6. It doesn’t really sink in so well.
