Gas Stations and Math. Math is everywhere!

Well, apparently math and gas stations are related.

I know that normally we aren't supposed to blog unless we are the scribe or a test is coming up, but I thought I would share something with the class.

You're probably are wondering how I can relate gas stations to math eh? Well, I shall explain.

Last night, I was driving around with my mom, taking pictures of places in my community, for a Geography project. We drove by a Domo Gas station. On the sign where it normally says what the price for gas per litre is, I noticed something strange. Instead of the sign reading, "90.4" it read "90^4". Now normally, I wouldn't think too much about that, but because of this pre cal class, it got me thinking about math suprisingly. I started thinking about what the actual price per litre of gas would be, and believe me, I would rather be paying 90.4 cents per litre than 90^4 cents per litre!
Now I know what my other math teachers were saying : "Math is everywhere!"

Math is everywhere! You use math to tell time, count money, how much you're gonna spend.. I mean, just tell me one day that you didn't use math. We use it pretty much everyday. But 90^4 cents of gas... I'm gonna be ready for a full-scale riot.
