This morning, a student approached R, one of my employees, and showed him the following equation:** 168 Γ· 12**

He then asked R, “Does this mean 168 divided by 12, or 12 divided by 168?”

R responded that it meant the former. The student thanked him and left.

A half-hour later, the student returned, and asked R, “How do I solve this?”

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.

I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
