If you love Math, here are some math problems for you:
A. MATH PROBLEM 1
“#TheManTalk ticket for a talk by Matt Fradd on chastity, chivalry, and real love on Nov 6, 2015 costs Php 300. The 36-page#PatronComics that discusses Catholic exorcism and pro-life issues costs Php 200. How much will you pay if you want to attend the talk and get a copy of the comics? Show your solution.
Answer. If you are a math wizard, you’ll immediately write Php 300 + Php 200 = Php 500. But wait, we forgot to tell you that because of the generosity of our sponsors for #TheManTalk by Matt Fradd on Nov 6, 2015, we in Filipinos for Life decided to give you this amazing promo: just pay only Php 300 and you get both the ticket and the comics!
But sorry, this promo is not for all. It is only for those who are in Ateneo de Manila University or those who will go out of their way to go to Ateneo de Manila University and find Dr. Quirino Sugon Jr at Manila Observatory. The target audience are students taking the following courses: Theology 131 on “Marriage, Family Life, and Human Sexuality”and Theology 151 on “The Catholic Commitment of Today’s Filipino: A Synthesis”. But the problem of Pornography which will be discussed in the talk also touches on Psychology and Sociology: students taking these courses may learn in the talk how pornography changes our brains, which would affect how we view and interact with the opposite sex. Convincing young men–and even women!– about the dangers of pornography is difficult feat, considering that we are already bombarded with porn in TV Shows and Movies. But Matt Fradd is no ordinary speaker. He used to work as a Catholic Apologist for Catholic Answers, answering diverse questions on Catholic doctrine. He also has his The Porn Effect website which discusses all issues related about pornography. Truly, Matt Fradd is most qualified to give #TheManTalk. And he’s not boring. He has honed his speaking talents so well that he is invited to give many talks in the US for thousands of audiences. His schedule is always full. So when we learned that he is coming to the Philippines for the Real Love Revolution on the Nov 7, 2015, we immediately booked him to give #TheManTalk for a smaller audience in St. Mary’s College of Quezon City Auditorium for a more intimate discussion on the art of manliness. It’s more personal. It’s more manly. It’s #TheManTalk.
Oh, this amazing promo is only for the first 200 tickets bought from Dr. Quirino Sugon Jr. at Manila Observatory. So call him now (09486669314) or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. The promo is scheduled for a week, but the 200 tickets may already be bought tomorrow. So hurry!
A. MATH PROBLEM 2
#TheManTalk ticket for a talk by Matt Fradd on chastity, chivalry, and real love on Nov 6, 2015 costs Php 300. What is the total cost for 10 tickets?
Answer. If you are a math wizard, you’ll immediately write Php 300 x 10 = Php 3,000. But if you read the promo poster, you can see that if you buy 10 tickets, you get 1 ticket free! So the effective cost per ticket is Php 3,000/11 = Php 273. That’s a Php 27 savings per ticket. You can already buy many things with a Php 27, such as ice cream or phone load. So text your friends and inform them of this wonderful offer. The more, the merrier, the cheaper.
Many lives have been changed by listening to Matt Fradd’s talk. And your life could be one of them. And those of your friends. Though #TheManTalk is primarily for men, we have also opened it to women, so that they can accompany their brothers, boyfriends, sons, and students. But women need to seat at the back. It’s a Man Talk after all. But the support of women is vital to the success of this event. We in Filipinos for Life are not here primarily for the money, but to educate young men and women on the virtues of chastity, chivalry, and real love. They are the future leaders of our nation. They are the future mothers and fathers of the family. They are the future nuns, brothers, and priests. The future belongs to them. The only way to predict the future is to try make it happen. So buy your tickets now for #TheManTalk by Matt Fradd on Nov 6, 2015, 1:00-4:00 pm at the St. Mary’s College of Quezon City. Look for Dr. Quirino Sugon Jr at Manila Observatory. Contact him using his phone (09486669314) or email (email@example.com). Let’s make the future happen. Today.
