We are currently doing elearning. I just had the following conversation.
Student- "I don't understand how to answer number 4. I looked up the yearly salary, but it does not give me the monthly salary"

Me- "How many month are in a year? If you know the number of months in a year, how would you find out the monthly salary if you know the yearly salary?"

Student- "I really have no idea"

Me= "How many months in a year?"

Student- "I don't know"

Me- " 12 months in a year. January, Feb., etc. So take the yearly salary and divide it by 12 to get the monthly salary"

Student-"That is so confusing."

Personal Finance class, 11th grade student. This should not be a conversation I should have had to have.
