## Figure It Out

Wrecky minion Jennifer T. is no dummy; she knows that sometimes you just can't trust a bakery to decorate your kid's birthday cake properly.

So *this* year, Jennifer asked the decorator to not even try. "Please just leave room so I can add my own toy figures," she asked, confident that this plan would FINALLY foil the wreckerators.

OR WOULD IT?

*"Leave room to figure!!!"*

Ahhh, those wily wreckerators.

...and now there is no room. The irony. IT BURNS.

|2(sqrt{2[log4(16)]} - {[log3(27)]3})| + 2 = _____

Yeah! Go figure.

LOL, SuBee!

Wow. GIving a kid a birthday cake with a math test on it. SO not fun!

As usual, SuBee wins. I have no idea what her comment was, but I'm sure someone can FIGURE it out.

Again, left wondering, how does this "decorator" even tie a flippin' apron? Where does the hairnet end up? And how long has he/she been hitting the vanilla extract?

I can't even figure.....

Hilarious how some of these wrecks take more effort than to just do them properly. That's dedication, right there!

I think that this is excellent philosophic advice to a child having a birthday. Thanks, Wrecky Baker!

Wow. Passive-aggressive much?

SuBee, awesome comment. Is it 16?

$30 for a half-sheet with some squiggles? I figure I'll make my own cake, thank you.

SuBee....you've done it again. You rock. And I did figure it out. The answer is: 16. Thank you Google!

Very clever SuBee as usual. LMAO.

Crikey! Most of these wrecks just seem to come from sheer stupidity or willful evilness on the part of the decorator. But this one seems to perhaps be the fault of the order taker. The order taker probably did not write that down correctly in the first place. Then, the decorator might have thought, "Well that's a bit odd, but okay, people have their private jokes." and piped what he/she saw on the form.

Now, if Jennifer filled out the form herself, or if the person who filled out the form is also the decorator, then headdesk.

P.S. Hey @Subee, does that come out to 2 + 2 = ??

Here you go Subee. My niece, the math major who does math problems for fun, solved it.

Answer is 16!

|2(sqrt{2 [log4(16)] } - { [log3(27)] 3})| + 2

log4(16)=2, because 4^2 = 16

log3(27)=3, because 3^3 = 27

So sqrt{2[log4(16)]}=sqrt{2*2}=2 and {log3(27)*3}=3*3=9

so

(sqrt{2 [log4(16)] } - { [log3(27)] 3})=-7

then the 2 at the beginning is multiplied by it all, so =-14. The vertical lines indicate absolute value, which means making a number positive, so |-14|=14. +2 =16!

*facepalm* Oi...

By the tag, I can tell you that cake is from TheStoreThatShallNotBeNamed, & also that it is "baked with pride". Hmmm....

Yes, @SuBee and Allegra. Obviously this is the result of having Math Teacher drilling "show your work" into your head; can't even have some frelling CAKE without it.

Oh my gosh, I am laughing so hard. Really, I should be used to seeing such things but... go fig. The uningenuity of wreckorators never ceases to amaze me. Wow!

Man, I need more room than that if I have to show my work.

@ SaraCVT Yeah, somebody was definitely "baked"....

Thanks, Allegra. Clearly 'sqrt' is 'square root'. I was sitting here thinking "When did 'squirt' become a mathematical function?"

And cake wreckerators being what they are, you just know that if you actually asked for a cake with some calculus on it, you'd get a picture of a cactus.

At least this could be a way find out whether they are a nerd or a jock: say 'I want a differential on the cake', and see whether you get an equation or an engine part...

Oh wow lol. Guess the wreckerators just didn't want to leave any room.. for anything to cover their mistake lol.

Well, the obvious SOLUTION is to jam those toys in that extra text, so that there is no readable text left there. Just some red... liquid.
