This evening I’m going to a party, that I was invited to yesterday evening. Nice.
It’s taking place in a pub… Not sure if it’s been hired, or what. It’s 1920’s & 30’s theme which sounds cool.
I was wondering about the hiring of the pub and how it would go, I know that in the students union (back in the day) you only had to get a certain level of takings and the hire was free.

For some reason I would imagine the conversation going something like this:

Punter(Henceforth refered to as ‘Punt’):How much is it to hire this bar out for an evening?
Bar Manager(Henceforth refered to as ‘BM’):Well if the takings behind the bar are X, it’ll be free, other wise it’ll be £250
Punt:How much is X?
BM:Well here is an equation, rearrange and solve for X
Punt:*GASP!* Applied mathematics, why do you haunt me so!
