When 10-year-old Lena Draper contacted the Marion, Ohio, Police Department for help, it was with a problem ... a math problem.
Lena was doing her homework and got stuck on a particular math problem, so she sent a message to the police department's Facebook page saying she needed help.
Officer B.J. Gruber responded with, "OK with what?" So Lena replied, "Well I don't understand (8+29)x15."
Officer Gruber could have explained to her that they are not math tutors, but instead he decided to help. He wrote back, "Do the numbers in the parenthesis first so in essence it would be 37 x 15."
Lena then asked for help with another question and Officer Gruber was again happy to help.
Lena's mother Molly later found out about their conversation and said, "I was happy, but not surprised that they responded so quickly. They are wonderful with their communication with the community."
