A question that had appeared on a third-grade student’s math homework has left the internet stumped after a concerned mom went online to try and find the answer.

Dusty Sappington, 40, from Terry, Mississippi, took to Reddit last week to share a photo of her eight-year-old daughter Izzy’s math homework, writing: ‘This third-grade math problem…’

The math problem, which Dusty circled in red, reads: ‘Janell had 15 marbles. She lost some of them. How many does Janell have now?’

Izzy had answered the problem with a question mark, and Dusty asked people in the Reddit thread to help her out.

‘If someone can answer this correctly, my child will be done with her homework!’ she said, noting her child wasn’t given any additional instructions.

Unsurprisingly, the tricky question left many Reddit users stumped, with some insisting that there wasn’t an actual numerical answer.

‘Today I learned that I’d possibly score less than some 3rd graders on math homework. I used to be so confident and cocky,’ funk_dunk wrote, while grenadetrade.com replied: ‘The correct answer is, “some.”‘

‘Janell lost her marbles,’ lockestar joked, and Dusty replied: ‘Me too…’

Every Girl’s 70s Pin-up And Why The Tragic News About David Cassidy Makes Our Hearts Skip A Beat

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Over the weekend, David Cassidy hovered on the brink of death in a Florida hospital. In his private room, the former teen idol was induced into a medical coma. His organs were failing, his body was shutting down, his family gathered at his bedside. Expecting the worst.

Over the wider world, more than a million hearts skipped a beat at the terrible news.

For the 67-year-old singer is still capable of producing an emotional crumple in middle-aged female fans who can still remember all the words to Cherish, his first hit single of nearly – gulp – 50 years ago.

Women who never met Cassidy, but who remember what it felt like to have loved him from afar. Women no longer in the first or even the fourth flush of youth, who are now willing him to get better, fingers crossed, Godspeed, get well soon.

His publicist said that there was nothing ‘imminent’ about Cassidy’s condition, despite the failure of his liver and kidneys. Doctors were hoping to keep him as well as possible, as the search begins to find a liver for a possible transplant operation. It is no secret that the star has had problems with alcohol addiction over the last few years, resulting in four arrests for drunk driving, a divorce from his third wife after 28 years together – and bankruptcy.

As he swam back into the headlines and his predicament became clear, it was hard not to feel a pang of sadness. Please, not David, not now. For him, above all the other teenyboppers and pop stars, has the power to transport a certain generation of women back to a very specific time in their past.


David Cassidy – March 10, 1974. David in front of 60,000 fans.

Back then, we had Charlie perfume on our wrists, strawberry-flavored gloss on our lips and David Cassidy on our bedroom walls. With his puka shell necklaces and appliquéd dungarees, he was the floppy-haired fount of a million schoolgirl crushes. Then and now, he represents the absolute essence of adolescence from a more innocent age – it is awful to think of him fighting for his life.

For he was our original poster boy, most beloved pin-up, our first, our last, our everything. We were absolutely crazy about him. In today’s world, where sophisticated teenagers have their pick of myriad distractions and entertainments, there is no comparison to the pungent, global power of his appeal.

You have absolutely no idea. Before him, there were four Beatles to choose from, while Davy Jones was the only Monkee worth losing your peanuts over – but everyone loved wholesome and sweet David.

At the height of Cassidymania, he was the highest-paid solo artist in the world, selling more than 25million copies of each of his singles. None of the dark and slightly dangerous stars who came afterward, such as Marc Bolan, David Bowie or Adam Ant could ever match his reach nor his nourishing, parent-approved appeal. Today, only Justin Bieber comes close in terms of passionate fandom – but to be frank, he and the Beliebers often seem bizarre and unhinged.

In comparison, David Cassidy’s songs plugged straight into the heart of the tentative yearnings of innocent little girl-ings, unsure and unschooled in the ways of love. Could It Be Forever? How Can I Be Sure? I Think I Love You – never have the conundrums of fledgling romance been so sweetly and acutely expressed. For the lovelorn amongst our sorority, there was the rainbow-chasing song Daydreamer.

And for me, there was Cherish, his first and, in my opinion, greatest song of all, in which he beseeched the object of his secret affection to ‘cherish me as much as I cherish you.’ I love it still.

And it gladdens my heart to note that somehow Cassidy survived the long-haul damage of 1970s pop celebrity and remained respectful of his fans.

Grace Kelly’s Granddaughter Is All Grown Up And She’s The Spitting Image Of Her

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

When a child is born, it is assumed the baby will look like the mother or the father. Sometimes, the resemblance is clear, especially with celebrity kids like the daughter of Reese Witherspoon. However, there are cases wherein the child resembles her grandparents. An obvious example is the granddaughter of the late Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco.

Pauline Grace Maguy Ducruet, is the daughter of Stephanie and the niece of the reigning monarch in Monaco, Prince Albert II. Many believed Pauline had gotten her looks from her famous grandmother. Despite being a part of a royal family, the 23-year-old young lady chose to reside in New York. She is also an up-and-coming designer, and her designs were inspired by her family’s signature looks.

Grace Kelly and Pauline Ducruet’s Similarities

Aside from being of royal blood, Pauline got the attention of the public because of her uncanny resemblance to the former movie star and Monaco royalty.

People thought they both share the same beauty and elegance. Pauline also travels a lot, just like her late grandmother, and documents her exploits on Instagram. The only difference was the career paths they chose. Grace Kelly started as an American actress and later became the Princess of Monaco because of her marriage to Prince Rainier III. She lived the rest of her life as a royal member of the family and had three children: current monarch Prince Albert, Caroline, and Pauline’s mother, Stephanie.

15 Things Every Fan Of ‘The Partridge Family’ Should Know

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

If you were a young TV watcher during the 1970s, you probably had a poster of Keith Partridge on your bedroom wall or a crush on Laurie. Maybe you admired Danny’s pluck, or wished you could play the tambourine alongside Tracy. You surely thought Shirley was the coolest mom ever, even if some of those outfits were a bit out there. The Partridge Family was one of the most popular programs on television between 1970 and 1974 (and beyond in syndication), and their fame spilled over to the music world as well. ABC struck gold with this show about a widowed working mother who forms a band with her five children, traveling from gig to gig in a trippy school bus. C’mon get happy and reminisce about your favorite musical sitcom with us, and learn a few things you never knew about The Partridge Family.

1. SHIRLEY JONES TURNED DOWN A ROLE ON THE BRADY BUNCH

Before The Partridge Family, Shirley Jones was actually offered the role of Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch. “While the idea of playing the mother in The Brady Bunch was initially attractive to me, I turned it down because I didn’t want to be the mother taking the roast out of the oven and not doing much else. I had no doubts at all about playing Shirley Partridge. First, because she was destined to become the first working mother on TV and I loved the script. Second, because working on the series would let me be an almost full-time mom and raise my kids.”

2. DANNY BONADUCE WAS ALWAYS A BIT OF A TROUBLEMAKER

Like his character, Danny Bonaduce, who played the wisecracking middle son Danny Partridge, was a bit of a wild child who would do things like throw food and have pillow fights. In Shirley Jone’s memoir she said, “We couldn’t deny that he was snotty at times. Once, when he was getting too big for his boots, we all ganged up on him and convinced Susan to pour a pitcher of milk over his head, just to put him in his place.” The actor later struggled with drug abuse, homelessness and multiple arrests but has continued to appear on television and radio throughout the years.

3. THE SUCCESS OF THE SHOW LED TO DIVORCE

Shirley Jones has said that the massive success of the show put a strain on her marriage to Jack Cassidy (who was David Cassidy’s dad in real life). “The stratospheric success of the show took its toll on my marriage to Jack. His overriding sense of inferiority in the face of my success drove him into the arms of other women even more often than before.”

4. THE CAST WAS NOT PROPERLY COMPENSATED

The show was a hit and the records were topping the charts…but Sony kept most of the money to themselves. David Cassidy turned into a huge teen idol and his likeness was being sold on all kinds of things from t-shirts to lunchboxes, but he only made $600 a week and didn’t get royalties. However he did get to renegotiate when his manager pointed out that he had been underage when he signed.

5. THERE WERE TWO CHRIS PARTRIDGES

When the show first started, Chris Partridge was played by Jeremy Gelbwaks but everyone complained about his behavior. So they replaced him with Brian Forster who stuck with the role until the show ended. The studio didn’t receive a single letter about the recasting.

6. THE PARTRIDGE DOG JUST VANISHED

In the first season, the Partridges had a dog named Simone who simply disappeared and was just never mentioned again.

7. THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY’S HOUSE WAS USED FOR OTHER SHOWS

If their home looked familiar that’s because it was used for other shows as well. The home was the same one that the Kravitz’s from Bewitched lived in. Years later the house was also used in the movie Pleasantville.
