Somaliland: Another Tale, Effective Listen !


Somalilandsun- A math teacher told his students to listen and take note.

He said, “Rami worked at the fruit section of a supermarket. His height was 5.8 meters. His waist was 81 centimeters. He worked 10 hours a day and earned $10 per day. What did he weigh?”
