Got a grin out of this one

My dear friend, Rebekah, sent me this in an e-mail today:

Children cause time warps, as we all know well. Today, I figured out the formula whilst trying to make lunch.

Length of task in minutes = x

Number of children = y

x + x(y)

For instance, during the lunch-making process today, I was watching 4 children. What would have taken 10 minutes, without interruptions, took almost 50 minutes. Here’s the formula at work:

10min. + 10min.(4) = 10 min. + 40min. = 50min.

Note: newborns are an exception to this formula; they have their own time warp.

Incredible deduction, Rebekah! The formula really works!!!
