Alice needs help settling a disagreement with her husband over the best route to take to their daughter’s house. It’s 1.5 miles if you go over a steep hill and 2 miles on a flat road. Her husband is a retired engineer, and he says to go over the hill. She thinks it causes less wear and tear to use the flat road. Guys agree with her; theoretically, her husband may be right, but in this case, the flat road is better.
