Some of you know that my husband is a printer, and when the print shop got in a huge order for business cards recently, he suggested that it might be blog-worthy. I offered to make him a partner on this blog and let him post about it, but he declined. Said I write better than he does. I don't know so much about that... but I promised to post about it if he would take a picture for me. So he did. And there you are!
Obviously, the business cards haven't been cut apart yet. They are run through the press "sixteen-up" which means there are 16 on each piece of paper. And being the good homeschool mom I am... let's have a little math story problem here, shall we?
A customer ordered 500,000 business cards. The printer can get 16 cards on one sheet of paper. There are 19 stacks of paper (what the printer calls "press lifts"). Approximately how many sheets of paper are in each stack?
