Estimating is a Math Skill

I asked Jerry if he thought I could clean up the kitchen in fifteen minutes.

"No." he said.

Way to show support!  I decided to accept the challenge. I turned the timer on to fifteen minutes to prove him wrong.  It buzzed.  I kept working.  Two and a half hours later, I finally finished.

"How did you know it would take me longer than fifteen minutes?" I asked.

"You seriously underestimated how messy it was."  he replied.
