I hope it helps out. If nothing else, the Krispy Kreme donut example seemed to grab their attention better than the "If a cell phone company charges $0.10 per text message" example my textbook has to offer.<br /><br />Scott from KansasAnonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13219466544846296306noreply@blogger.com
