A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.
The “Pies Per Child” approach to fractions used in this part comes from James Tanton, and is used with his permission. See his development of these and other ideas at http://gdaymath.com/.
