I’m assuming there’s a backstory here.
Actually, this is providing the backstory for the most famous math joke of all time: Why is 6 afraid of 7? … Because 7 “8” 9.
Haha. I see. But is this really “math”?
You’re right. We stooped a little low on this one, but I couldn’t resist paying tribute to the first number joke I ever heard. We’ll get back to some deeper math concepts next week.
I guess it’s good to have some variety! Looking forward to next week’s Off the Number Line cartoon.
