Instead of turning her away, Draper says Marion Police Dept. Lt. B.J. Gruber, the officer who runs the page, simply responded, “Ok with what?”
Lena asked for help with two problems: (8+29)x15 and (90+27) + (29+15) x 2
Lt. Gruber got the first one right, but gave the wrong answer for the second. “Take the answer from the first parenthesis plus the answer from the second parenthesis and multiply that answer times two,” Gruber explained. “Work left to right doing the work inside the parenthesis first.”
Gruber later admitted his error, explaining that he was a history major in college.
