Maths Challenge Solution: 
10% of 25 million is 2.5 million, or 2,500,000.
That would buy 250,000 children tickets to a Women’s World Cup match! 

Squiz-E’s questions: 

Why do you think the TV show didn’t report WHEN this incident happened? 

Why do you think the exterminator agreed to appear on the show, almost a year after it happened? 

Why do you think the extermination company keeps reposting different versions of the video to TikTok?
