So, while to give the kids all of the attention that they need would be 720 times the work, they don't get it and they get neglected (there's only so much that you can do). But that is offset by inter-sibling care. When you have that many they are bound to keep each other amused. I dropped math in grade 11 so I can't come up with the mathematical formula, but I'm sure that it can be written up.
I think I found it:
t = number of children
x = the Inter-sibling Care Constant (6.626 x 10^-34)
h = speed of light in a day-care center (2.98 x 10^8 - a little smaller than the speed in a vacuum since things seem to take longer)
Anyone remember how to solve integrals?
Nice first try. Inter-sibling care is never a constant. It changes radically and there has to be a negative in there for the occasional inter-sibling abuse factor.
The bottom line is, and I learned this from sports interviews, you can only give 110%.
