Math Boy

Jed's really into math right now. He's improved amazingly this month with just a little practice. Today's board question:

Jed walks into the store.  He has two five dollar bills and two one dollar bills.  How much money does he have?

He sees a helicopter for 6 dollars and a monster truck for 4 dollars.  Does he have enough money to buy both? How much would it cost to buy both? 

He knows that ice cream cones are a dollar each.  How many ice cream cones can he buy with his leftover money?

Jed figured out all the questions instantaneously in his head before I could even draw out the figures on the board.  He's so awesome!
