J.J. Abrams Personally Solves Kid’s Algebra Problem

Last week, a (rightfully) proud father’s Facebook post went viral as he shared his 8th grade son’s homework. The assignment? To create an algebraic expression into a word problem. And his son Cody’s answer (with no help from his parents)?

In case you’re having trouble reading the above, it says:

J.J. Abrams is making Star Wars Episode 7. He rented three speeder bikes which was 700 imperial credits to start. He must pay 100 imperial credits to keep his speeder bikes daily. If he does not pay daily, Prince Xizor and other Black Sun members will kidnap J.J. Abrams, bring him to Mustafar, and sacrifice him.

J.J. Abrams is also paying 5 bounty hunters to keep separatist spies out. That costs 200 imperial credits to start, then 50 imperial credits for each bounty hunter every time they capture a spy. The Separatists send 2 spies every day.

In how many days does J.J. Abrams spend the same amount of imperial credits on speeders and bounty hunters?

Yeah, I’m jealous too. :-P 

But wait — the story gets better! Because yesterday, it was revealed that J.J. Abrams not only responded to Cody’s homework, he solved it too! In a handwritten note that presents another question!

How psyched must Cody and his dad must have been to receive this surprise in the mail? And how awesome was it for J.J. Abrams to personally reach out to a young, enthusiastic fan?
