Toilet Paper Math 


I bought some toilet paper.  Usually a pretty simple process.  And many manufacturers are now selling "double roll," with some even offering triple or quadruple selections.

But what the heck is this word "double?"  I've never heard it before!  And as I don't have a calculator handy, I can't be expected to know how many regular rolls of TP this "double roll" package equals!

Ah!  Thank heavens, the fine people at Kleenex gave me a handy! conversion factor right on the front of the package.
And just in case I didn't understand, they also tell me what "triple" means, on the back of the package.
