Baby Gibsons Aunt By Richard Holden

Overview The characters Bad news/good news Calculating the good More bad news Calculating the bad Conclusion and final thoughts

Rufus Henry On parole from Pine Valley Honor Camp Lives in the Flats –D–Durango housing project Lives with mother, sister and brother Hero is Ernie Brown, halfback for Cleveland Corsairs

Walter Baby Gibson Rufus best friend Huge and powerful for his age Belongs to the Moors, a street gang Impulsive Comes to Rufus with good news/bad news

Baby Gibsons Aunt Sally Bad news: –T–Terminally ill Good news: –L–Leaving all to Baby House Belongings Savings Classic car –S–Splitting all with Rufus Each will get half

How Much? So how much are we talking about, Baby?

Aunt Sallys House Assessed at \$25,000 Needs repairs of \$5000 Set aside costs: –I–Insurance: \$500 –T–Taxes: 2% of assessed value [25,000 – 5000 – 500 –.02(25,000)] = Money from House

Belongings Cost of most furniture –New: \$9,000 –Currently: 1/3 new price Cost of antique rocker –New: \$500 –Currently: 5 times the cost new (9,000 ÷ 3 + 5*500) = Money from Belongings

Savings \$500 cash \$1,500 checking \$3,000 bonds \$5,000 CDs Debt Credit card debt is \$2,500 (500 + 1,500 + 3,000 + 5,000 – 2,500) = Money from Savings

Classic Car Original cost: \$2,000 Value in 1980: \$500 Value Dec 99: \$1,000 Since December 2000, it has doubled in value each of the past 5 years! 1,000 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = (1,000 * 2 5 ) = Money from Car

Rufus Computes His Share House: [25,000 – 5000 – 500 –.02(25,000)] + Belongings: (9,000 ÷ 3 + 5*500) + Savings: (500 + 1,500 + 3,000 + 5,000 – 2,500) + Car: (1,000 * 2 5 ) Rufus will get one-half of all this money, so Rufus Share = ½{ [25,000 – 5000 – 500 –.02(25,000)] + (9,000 ÷ 3 + 5*500) + (500 + 1,500 + 3,000 + 5,000 – 2,500) + (1,000 * 2 5 ) }

Bad News from Aunt Sally!

Bad News Passed to Rufus: Please excuse my dear aunt Sally She had an accident –D–Destroyed her car –H–Had no insurance –H–Had to pay for other car she hit

Rufus Remembers the Order of Operations Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally Parenthesis: ( ), [ ], { }, Exponents Multiplication or Division (in order left to right) Addition or Subtraction (in order left to right)

Rufus Calculates His Would Be Gain ½{ [25,000 – 5000 – 500 –.02(25,000)] + (9,000 ÷ 3 + 5*500) + (500 + 1,500 + 3,000 + 5,000 – 2,500) + (1,000 * 2 5 ) } First, work within each inner parentheses: = ½{[25,000 – 5000 – 500 – 500] + (3000 + 2500) + (7,500) + (1,000 * 32)} = ½{[19,000] + (5,500) + (7,500) + (32,000)} = ½ {64,000} = \$32,000

Rufus Asks About Damages So how much does the accident set us back, Baby?? Aunt Sally loses her car and has to pay \$32,000 in damages to the other driver

Rufus Computes His Share of Loss = – ½ [Car value before accident + 32,000] = – ½ [(1,000 * 2 5 ) + 32,000] = – ½ [(1,000 * 32) + 32,000] = – ½ [(32,000) + 32,000] = – ½ [64,000] = – \$32,000

Rufus Passes on His Calculations That leaves us exactly zero! Guess were no worse off than when we started, Ruf.

Rufus Summarizes the Day I guess the moral of this is that we need to depend more on ourselves

But, more importantly, right now we need to quit thinking about us and help your poor Aunt Sally!!
