Mathematics for parents

Question 11:

If a child, aged 3 years and 3 months,
does a 3ml wee on the toilet
and uses 59 pieces of toilet paper,
how many pieces of toilet paper will said child use when she actually does a poo?

Bonus question for an additional point:
What is the best way of dealing with said 59 pieces of toilet paper
without stuffing up the sewerage?

Yes I have a 3 year old who does that! Bicarb & vinegar in the toilet bowl will usually eat through it! I need to invest in toilet paper shares.

Let it soak for a while so that it disintegrates. Works for paper towels too. Cherrie

Very pleased to hear about bicarb and vinegar possibilities. Generally I come over religious and PRAY. Good luck with the poo.
