A girl got the homework help she needed when facing a math emergency thanks to her local police department.

    A series of photos shared by the Marion, Ohio, Police Department Facebook page shows a message a fifth-grade student sent the department, asking for help solving a math problem. The girl’s mother, Molly Draper, originally shared the images online.

    My daughter. Cause...  She's my daughter.

    Here’s a transcript of the conversation:

    Student: I’m having trouble with my homework. Could you help me?

    Police department: What’s up?

    Student: Well I don’t understand (8+29) x 15

    Police department: Do the numbers in the parentheses first so in essence it would be 37 x 15

    Student: OK, now if I had this (90+27) + (29+15) x 2

    Police department: Take the answer from the first parentheses plus the answer from the second parentheses and multiply that answer times two. Work left to right doing the work inside the parentheses first.

    While the police department wasn’t entirely right on the second question (remember the order of operations!), people on social media were touched by officers' willingness to help.
