I was just posting in Essjay's blog that I hadn't been tagged, and here was my smart-ass contribution, when I head over to iKate's blog, and lo and behold, I was tagged. Oops.

The Rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 (or more) pages.

Robert Blitzer's Introductory & Intermediate Algebra, Third Edition.

2. Open the book to page 123 and find the 5th sentence.

"In Exercises 59-66, use the given information to write an equation."

3. Post the next 3 sentences.

"Let x represent the number described in each exercise. Then solve the equation and find the number. 59. If a number is multiplied by 6, the result is 10."

4. Tag 5 people.

Um. Five people who haven't been tagged, read this blog, and want to do the meme. (Neener, neener.)

HA! I giggled when I saw your comment, knowing you'd been tagged already!

Are you enjoying editing that math text book?

The funny thing about working in Editorial is that I don't "edit" anything.

If I were to do this right now, it'd be on a page with end notes. Do end notes count as sentences?

Stine said...

I did it on math exercise instructions. And a math problem. So yes, end notes count.

So, this is the sort of punishment we get because you're blogging at work. :doh:
