Mommy Math for Back to School

I registered the kids for school last week.

I came home with some math to do.

It's a word problem, and it goes something like this:

1.  There were 5 forms to fill out for school registration.  All were available online to print off  so you can go to registration with all filled out.  One form has two pages, but the last page was not available to print off.  Another form had enough room to include 3 students on it.  The 1:1 computer form had two pages, needed initials from both student and parent, and both pages were available to print.  One form was for high school athletics only.  The last form was to inform school officials what language was the most prevalent language used in our household.

Question:  If you have two kids in high school and two in middle school, how far is it to the local bank to take out a loan to sign up four kids for school?

I'm more of a words kind of girl.....I never really "got" math.  But this math word problem makes total sense to me.
