Teacher: If you had $750 in one pocket and $600 in the other pocket, what would you have?

Pupil: Somebody else’s pants.

Teacher: How old were you on your last birthday?

Student: Seven.

Teacher: How old will you be on your next birthday?

Student: Nine.

Teacher: That’s impossible.

Student: No, it isn’t, Sir. I’m eight today.

Question: Why was Six afraid of Seven?

Answer: Because 7, 8, 9. (Seven ate Nine)

Question: Why couldn’t the seven and the ten get married?

Answer: They were under eighteen.

Question: Simplify: 2x/(2x+1)
