### I swear this happens with every single test I give

**Student** (waving me over): Miss, I have a question about this problem. (Points to question that reads *One of the sides of a pentagon has length 10. The lengths of the other four sides are each equal to a sixth of its perimeter. What is the perimeter of the pentagon?*). How many sides does a pentagon have?

**Me** (reading aloud): Well, let’s see - *ONE of the sides of a pentagon has length 10. The lengths of the OTHER FOUR SIDES are each equal to a sixth of its perimeter.*

**Student** (pauses for a second, and then looks up): Oh, okay, cool, thanks, I get it now!
