On June 10, the Deseret News ran a column titled "Edison students are rich in heart" by Cathy Free. I hope the students at Edison Elementary School have better math skills than Emily Hoopes, founder of the Pennies for Patrick drive and mother of Patrick. She stated, "Do you know how many pennies it took to get $747? Seventy thousand, four hundred and seven." The correct figure should have been 74,700. Her figure amounts to $704.07. Tsk, tsk.
